Effects of Tamoxifen and Glucose on Breast Cancer T47D Cells
Shamileh Fouladdel , Bagher Larijani and Ebrahim Azizi

Abstract:
Due to controversial reports on the relationship between diabetes and cancer, we decided to look at the effects of Tamoxifen (TAM) in the presence and absence of high glucose concentrations on proliferation of human breast cancer T47D cells and its Tamoxifen resistant subline (TAMR-6 cells). Both cell types were separately grown in 24-well culture plates for up to 4 weeks in the RPMI1640 culture medium containing TAM, different concentrations of glucose, combination of TAM and glucose and control (RPMI). Trypan blue dye exclusion method was used to evaluate the in vitro cytotoxicity of test compounds. Data indicated a time and dose dependent antiproliferative effect of glucose on T47D cells at studied concentrations. Results also showed that the cytotoxicity of glucose was significantly greater on parent T47D than TAMR-6 cells (p<0.01). A significant synergistic effect was also observed between TAM and glucose on both cell types (p<0.01). In conclusion, present results indicate that high glucose concentrations similar to diabetic conditions exert antiproliferative effects in breast cancer T47D cells.
