From: Brazilian red propolis: phytochemical screening, antioxidant activity and effect against cancer cells

IC50 (μg/mL)
  Cells   
  HCT-116 SF-295 OVCAR-8
EEP ~25.26 34.27 (24.28 – 48. 37) 28.76 (24.42 – 33.87)

  1. Assessment of both Brazilian red propolis extract (EEP) and Doxorubicin cytotoxicity (MTT assay) 72 h after incubation with three tumour cell lines. IC50 and 95 % confidence interval - CI (μg/mL) calculated based on the mean and corresponding standard deviation of the mean and determined through non-linear regression
