Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of gilaburu juice on cell viability (3- (4,5-dimethyl-thiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide, MTT) and angiogenesis (tube formation assay) using different cell lines (human cancer cell lines A549, Caco-2, HeLa and normal cell lines MDCK and HUVEC) in vitro. In addition, the genotoxic effects of gilaburu juice is evaluated using COMET assay on HUVEC cells. Our results demonstrate that gilaburu juice could inhibit the growth of Caco-2 and HeLa cancer cell lines, but could not significantly inhibit normal cell lines and A549 cancer cell lines. It disrupted tube formation of HUVEC cells. Gilaburu juice appears to have no genotoxic potential to the DNA of HUVEC cells. The results obtained in this study confirm the potential application of commercial gilaburu juice as a functional food in prevention of cancer.
