OBJECTIVE: The effects of curcumin on angiogenesis were studied.

METHODS: Proliferation of bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAECs) and cells of human cancerous cell line SGC-7901 were measured by MTT colorimetric assay after treated by various concentrations of curcumin. The effects of curcumin on BAECS proliferation promoted by tumor conditioned medium were observed by MTT colorimetric assay. The effects of various concentration of curcumin on the migration of BAECs and migration promoted by tumor conditioned medium were investigated by agorose assay.

RESULTS: Curcumin can obviously inhibit the proliferation of BAECs induced by fetal bovine serum (FBS) and tumor conditioned medium. Curcumin can also obviously inhibit the migration of BAECs induced by FBS and tumor conditioned medium.

CONCLUSION: Curcumin can inhibit angiogenesis by preventing proliferation and migration of endothelial cells. It also suggestes that curcumin is one kind of specific inhibitors of angiogenesis.
