Effect of DFO-B on human cell lines K 562, MCF-7 and HEK 293. The results of MTT assay were plotted using statistical analytical software - GraphPad Prism 7.01 and SigmaStat 4.0. The readings of control wells containing untreated cells were considered as 100% survival. a For human leukemia cell K 562, a statistically significant reduction in cell survival at DFO-B concentration of 0.5 mg/mL. b A statistically significant decrease in cell survival was seen with breast cancer cell line MCF-7 at DFO-B concentration of 1.0 mg/mL was observed (P <0.01). c No statistically significant decrease in the percent survival of normal embryonic kidney cell line HEK 293 was observed at DFO-B concentration upto 1.0 mg/mL
