  • Korean traditional fermented soy paste (doenjang) prolonged the life span of Balb/c mice injected with the sarcoma-180 cells. The activities of liver enzymes, such as xanthine oxidase, aminopyrine N-demethylase, aniline hydroxylase, ${\gamma}$-glutamylcysteine synthetase, glutathione reductase and glutathione S-transferase (GST), and the contents of lipid peroxide and glutathione were determined from the sarcoma-180 cell injected mice that were treated with methanol extracts from doenjang, miso and soybean. The content of lipid peroxide and the activity of xanthine oxidase in the liver of Balb/c mice which were increased by the transplantation of the sarcoma-180 cells were decreased by treatment with the methanol extract from doenjang. But the activities of aminopyrine N-dementhylase and aniline hydroxylase were not affected by the treatment of methanol extracts from doenjang to the mice injected with the sarcoma-180 cells. The content of glutathione, the activities of glutamylcysteine synthetase, glutathione reductase and glutathione S-transferase decreased by the injection of the sarcoma-180 were recovered considerably by the treatment of the methanol extract from doenjang.

  • Inhibitory effects of the methanol extract, hexane extract, methanol soluble fraction (MSF) and juice from 3 weeks fermented Kimchi on the tumor formation in sarcoma-180 cell transplanted mice were studied. Effects of the solvent extracts and juice of the Kimchi on the levels of lipid peroxide, glutathione, and the enzyme activities of the liver were also investigated in normal and sarcoma-180 cell transplanted mice. At 32 days following trans-plantation, MSF reduced the tumor formation by 54% compared with the control group, resulting in the smallest tumor weight. Lipid peroxided content in liver increased by the transplantation of sarcoma-180 cells. However, it decreased when MSF of Kimchi was treated to the mice. MSF also suppressed xanthine oxidase activity in cytosol of the liver cells in mice transplanted by sarcoma-180 cells. Kimchi extracts had no inhibitory effect on hepatic aminopyrine-N-demethylase activity in sarcoma-180 cell transplanted or normal mice. Methanol extract and hexane extract of Kimchi slightly increased hepatic glutathione contents in sarcoma-180 treated mice. The injection of MSF from Kimchi markedly increased glutathione levels in the liver of sarcoma-180 treated mice. The injection of MSF from Kimchi markedly increased glutathione levels in the liver of sarcoma-180 treated mice compared to the controls. The MSF recovered the activities of hepatic glutathione reductase and glutathione S-transferase that decreased by the injection of sarcoma-180 cells. These results showed that MSF of Kimchi could suppress the growth of tumors, inhibiting lipid peroxide production and xanthine oxidase activity, in mice. We also suggested that Kimchi extract might play an important role in the prevention of cancer by enhancement of the glutathione level itself as well as via glutathione reductase and glutathione S-transferase.

  • To develop Corni Fructus as a cancer preventive food material, the in vitro cytotoxicities and in vivo antitumor activities of various concentrations of 80% Corni Fructus ethanol extract (CFEE) were investigated using sarcoma-180 cancer cell. Viability was decreased and cell death rate was increased in both dose- and time-dependent manners in cells treated with CFEE at 10, 100, 300, and $500\;{\mu}g/mL$ concentrations for 24, 48, and 72 hr. Proliferation was also inhibited more than 60% in cells treated with CFEE at the $100\;{\mu}g/mL$ concentration for 48 hr. In addition, the morphology of cells treated with CFEE at the 100 and $500\;{\mu}g/mL$ concentrations was distorted with shrunken cell masses and lower cell numbers compared to the control cells. In the cells treated with CFEE, the formation of apoptotic bodies and nuclear condensation were observed in dose dependent manners. CFEE also increased DNA fragmentation values at the 100 and $500\;{\mu}g/mL$ concentrations. The apoptosis induced by CFEE was connected to the proteolytic activation of caspase-3. When CFEE was administered at 100 and 300 mg/kg, ip, for 7 consecutive days in mice inoculated with sarcoma-180 cancer cell, the life span of the mice was found to be longer than that of the control mice that did not receive the extract. These results suggest that Corni Fructus may be used as a potential cancer preventive food material.

  • Objective : The objective of this study was to investigate the experimental efficacy of anti-tumor activity of the complexed herbal formula, Onbaekwon (OBW), which was derived from the literature of Traditional Korean Medicine, Dongeuibogam. Methods : Nine Cancer cell lines, LoVo, MCF-7, HepG2, AGS, A549, NCI-H69, HL-60, Sarcoma 180, LL/2, were prepared and the cytotoxicity was assessed by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2yl)-2,5-dephenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay. Four of them, NCI-H69, HL-60, Sarcoma 180, and LL/2, showed strong cytotoxic activities and they were additionally undergone flow cytometry to find out their effects on apoptosis. ICR male mice were implanted with Sarcoma 180 intraperitoneally and divided into 8 species for each group. Control group was treated with normal saline, positive control group was treated with cyclophosphamide 8mg/kg, and experimental group was treated with OBW 1 g/kg. Results : Among 9 cancer cell lines, NCI-H69, HL-60, Sarcoma 180, and LL/2, expressed less than 0.10 mg/ml of $IC_{50}$ under 0.1~1mg/ml of OBW. NCI-H69, HL-60, Sarcoma 180, and LL/2, showed dose-dependent efficacy of apoptosis. When Sarcoma 180 cancer cell was implanted in ICR male mice and treated with the OBW, they prolonged the median overall survival for 0.8 days, from 17.5 to 18.3. Conclusion : OBW showed strong cytotoxicity to some cancer cells, which are NCI-H69, HL-60, Sarcoma 180, and LL/2, and its apoptotic activity was dose-dependent. OBW prolonged the median survival of mice implanted with Sarcoma 180. Further researches would be expected to support the efficacy of OBW.

  • This study was designed to observe the anticancer activity of propolis on human rectal (HRT-18) and human colon (HCT-48) cancer cell lines in vitro, and on sarcoma-180 cells in vitro. The proliferation of HRT-18 and HCT-48 cancer cell lines was potently inhibited in proportion to the concentration of propolis. The survival time of the mice inoculated with sarcoma-180 cells was increased modestly by the administration of propolis compared to the control. Those observations suggest that propolis has anticancer effects against some of the cancer cell lines in vitro and in in vitro.

  • Objectives : The anticancer response of three different types of water extracts of Zingiberaceae Curcuma longa L. tested for sarcoma 180. Only few studies carried out to investigate the effects of other contents of Curcuma longa L. in anticancer activities, therefore, in this study we have investigated the effects of other component then curcumin in Curcuma longa L. for anticancer a activities. Methods : Three different types of water extracts of Curcuma longa L. were prepared as follows. The sarcoma cells (S180) were maintained in Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium (DMEM) and were seeded on 24-well cell culture cluster flat bottom with lid tissue culture treated non-pyrogenic polystyrene. The growth of sarcoma 180 was monitored for 1, 2 and 5 days. The sarcoma cells were pictured using inverted microscope and cell density was counted using hemocytometry. Results : After 5 days in the culture medium the results showed high growth of sarcoma 180 for control condition and the surface of CCP plates were fully covered with the cells. In case of medium in which the 10% of filtered water extract of Curcuma longa L. was added a very limited growth of sarcoma 180 was observed. The results were showed only small difference in cell density for two different concentrations of unfiltered water extracts of Curcuma longa L. whereasin case of filtered water extracts the control of sarcoma growth shows better result. Conclusion : The filtered water extracts showed the best result relatively to the unfiltered water extracts for two different concentrations. This indicates that the water extracts of Curcuma longa L. can have anticancer activities possibly without curcumin.
