Cinnamon alters growth kinetics of cervical cancer cells. (A) The cells were treated with various concentrations (0-80 μg/ml) of ACE-c for 24, 48 and 72 h, and the number of viable cells were counted using the trypan blue dye exclusion assay. The growth kinetics has been presented in the figure taken at different time points. Data represent mean ± SD of five different experiments. (B) The cells (1 × 103/ml) were grown in 6-well plates and treated with various concentrations (0-80 μg/ml) of ACE-c for one week. The cells were then stained with crystal violet and photographed. The experiments were repeated five times. (C) The cells (5 × 103) were treated with various concentrations (0-80 μg/ml) of ACE-c and grown in soft agar for 10 days, and the colonies were counted. Colonies were counted from at least 10 different areas, and the average of each is plotted. The data represent mean ± SD of five independent experiments.
