Aberrant angiogenesis is essential to the development and progression of leukemia. Ginsenoside Rg3 has been commonly used in anti-angiogenic therapy of solid tumors. This study aimed to investigate the anti-angiogenic effects of Rg3 in patients with acute leukemia. Bone marrow stromal cells derived from patients with acute leukemia were treated with Rg3 and the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF-1α) was detected by RT-PCR and western… CONTINUE READING
