POTENTIAL ANTITUMOR ACTIVITY OF CURCUMIN WITH RETINYLESTER MICRO-CAPSULED FORMULA
Keywords:Curcumin –Retinylester- Microcapsules-Anticancer
AbstractBackground: The Bioavailabilty, efficacy and disease resistance of chemotherapy are the limitations of cancer treatment. This study was designed to formulate a microcapsules containing curcumin and retinylester as core material and tested the anti-cancer activity against different cancer cell lines. Materials and methods: This study involved the design and formulation of microcapsules containing curcumin and retinylester as (core materials) embedded in dextrin/gelatin as wall materials. It was examined by Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy FTIR and tested against HeLa and HepG2 cancer cell lines. Results: Analysis of microcapsule by FTIR showed the characteristic band (2000cm-1~ 3800cm-1) that is indicated mainly from OH-, – CH3 and double bond. These bond stretching showed spectral bands peak 2975cm-1and 2670cm-1, 2836cm-1 respectively. The anticancer activity of these microcapsules on HeLA and HepG2 showed inhibition percent 87% and 85% respectively and non-toxic effect on normal cells. Conclusion: Micro capsulated form of curcumin-retinylester showed an efficient medicinal mixture displayed a significant effect to HeLa and HepG2 cells which is very promising effective in the treatment of cancer.
