CONCLUSION: The results of the present work revealed that aesculetin exhibits selective anticancer effects in THP-1 human leukemia cells without causing much cytotoxicity in PBMCs. It also led to significant apoptosis induction, inhibition of cancer cell migration and decrease in Blc-2/Bax ratio. PMID: 29332353 [PubMed - in process]
