The purpose of this study was to investigate the anticancer activity of polysaccharides from brown seaweed Sargassum wightii (SWP) on human breast cancer cells. Initially, two polysaccharide fractions (SWP1 and SWP2) were isolated and purified from the crude polysaccharides using DEAE-52 cellulose and Sephadex G-100 column chromatography. As a result, SWP1… CONTINUE READING
