Table 1 Cell viability

From: Human desmoid fibroblasts: matrix metalloproteinases, their inhibitors and modulation by Toremifene

  Viable cells Dead cells % of dead cells
Normal fibroblasts 1,224,805 ± 56,280 308 ± 26 0.025
Desmoid fibroblasts 1,636,710 ± 84,105* 29 ± 4 0.0017
Desmoid fibroblasts + toremifene 1,393,900 ± 86,400 161 ± 15 0.011
  1. Fibroblasts were cultured for 24 h in MEM containing ethanol with or without toremifene. Number of viable and dead cells/culture after exposure to trypan blue for 15 min. The values are the means ± SD of five cultures. *Significance vs normal fibroblasts: P < 0.01.
