Effect of the fucoidan extract on the cell viability of HT1080 cells

To examine the effect of power fucoidan on HT1080 cell viability, cells were treated with different concentrations of fucoidan solution (1-80%) for 2 days and cell proliferation was evaluated by WST-1 assay. As shown in Fig. 1, no significant effect was observed on viability of HT1080 cell when exposed 1-20% fucoidan solution. However, the cytotoxic effect of fucoidan happened in a dose-dependent when challenged by more than 20% fucoidan solution. To exclude toxic effect of fucoidan on the study, less than 20% fucoidan solution was used throughout the experiments.
