Abstract
To study the biotherapy effect of Shenfuweikang herbs in treatment of gastric cancer, Kunming mice were grafted with a mouse gastric adenocarcinoma cell line MFC. Mice received different doses of Shefuweikang herbs after grafting. Tumor size was periodically measured and tumor weight was determined after the animals sacrificed. Apoptotic indices (AI) were examined by TUNEL assay and flow cytometric analysis. Serum cytokines IFN- and granzyme B were detected by ELISA. The anti-tumor effect was determined by the cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) assays. Our results demonstrated that Shefuweikang herbs could induce apoptosis and inhibit the growth of gastric cancer by activating the CTLs and eliciting the secretion of cytokines, IFN- and granzyme B. Our study suggests that Shefuweikang herbs inhibit the proliferation of gastric carcinoma by inducing the apoptosis of tumor cells and activating the effects of immune cells, which may lay a better basis for further study on gastric cancer biotherapy
