Figure 2

Growth curves for SW480 cells (A) HCT-116 cells (B), HCT-15 cells (C), HT-29 (D) were plotted as average cell counts over time after treatment with 100 μM tocopherol at 1, 2, and 3 days. and Live Cell Counts in CCD-112CoN cells following 100 μM tocopherol treatment at 72 hours (E). Values plotted are averages of three independent trials. Error bars represent standard deviation of the means. Positive controls used included (15 deoxy Δ 12,14 PGJ2, troglitzone and camptothecin). (Data are representative of three independent trials performed in triplicate. *p < 0.05 vs. vehicle at corresponding concentration.)
