A méz és a kerti katicavirág hatóanyaga is elindítja a májrák sejtjeinek elhalását

A méz különféle higításait és a kerti katicavirág magjának alkoholos kivonatának hatását vizsgálták májrák-sejtekre.

A kerti katicavirág magját Tutankhamon sírkamrájában is megtalálták.

Honey and Black Seed Extract Induce Live Cancer Cell Death

Antineoplastic Effects of Bee Honey and Nigella sativa on Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells
Integr Cancer Ther, 2010 Dec 8

Objectives: To evaluate in vitro antitumor effects of bee honey (BH) and Nigella sativa (NS) on HepG2 through their antioxidant and apoptotic activities.

Methods: HepG2 cell line was treated with different concentrations of diluted unfractionated BH and different concentrations of alcohol extract of NS. Exposure lasted for different time durations (6-72 hours), both dose-response and time course-response were conducted. Cell viability was tested by trypan blue exclusion test. Total antioxidant status and caspase-3 activity were estimated in the cell lysate. Nitric oxide levels were measured in culture supernatants of both treated and untreated HepG2 at all indicated times.

Results: Treatment of HepG2 cells with BH and NS leads to a significant decrease in both the number of viable HepG2 cells and the levels of nitric oxide on one hand, but improvement of the total antioxidant status and caspase-3 activity on the other, especially in HepG2 cells treated with higher doses of BH and NS (20% and 5000 g/mL, respectively) and for longer duration (72 hours).

Conclusions: BH and NS are effective in reducing the viability of HepG2 cells, improving their antioxidant status and inducing their apoptotic death.
