Inhibitory effect of curcumin on angiogenesis in a streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat model: An aortic ring assay

BACKGROUND Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) has been associated with the inhibition of angiogenesis, as well as the prevention of cancers and inflammatory processes. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of curcumin in suppressing angiogenesis in the cultured endothelial cells of rat aortic rings. METHODS Eight-week-old male Wistar rats were… (More)
