CONCLUSIONS These findings demonstrate that diosmetin has anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic activities against MDA-MB-231 cells via cell cycle arrest and the mitochondria-mediated intrinsic apoptotic pathway. Our results extend the understanding of the anti-tumor mechanism of diosmetin and suggest that it may be of use as an active natural agent for the prevention or treatment of human breast cancer.

DR INGRID MESZOELY (Nashville, TN): Margin status remains a nemesis for surgeons in nearly all cancer procedures, given its association with risk of recurrence and poorer outcomes. Breast cancer is no exception. The goal of a negative margin often results in reoperation including re-excision or unilateral or bilateral mastectomy, frequently leading to increased surgeon frustration, increased patient anxiety, possible decrease in optimal cosmetic outcome, and increase in health care expenditure.
