Aim

The aim of this study is to evaluate the antiangiogenic and antiproliferative activity of Fucoidan extracted from U. pinnatifid algae on breast cancer cell line (MCF7). Tumor angiogenesis molecular targets are VEGF and HGF (HGF regulates VEGF expression via the c-Met receptor downstream pathway

Progress

1. Found out the best way to extract a macroalgae
2. Extracted macroalgae using different solvents
