The objective of the present study was to investigate the anticancer properties of hesperidin against human osteosarcoma MG-63 cells. Its effects on apoptosis, cell migration, cell invasion and cell cycle arrest, and its effects on tumor volume and weight were also evaluated in the present study. MTS assay was used to study the cytotoxic effects of the compound on cell viability. Effects on apoptosis and cell cycle arrest were evaluated by flow cytometry.wound healing assay and Matrigel assay were performed to study the effects of hesperidin on cell migration and cell invasion, respectively. Hesperidin exerted dose-dependent and time-dependent growth inhibitory effects on cervical cancer cells with IC50 values of 33.5, 23.8 and 17.6µM, respectively, at 24, 48 and 72 h time intervals. Hesperidin led to early and late apoptosis induction in these cells. Hesperidin-treated cells also led to G2/M phase cell cycle arrest, which exhibited strong dose-dependence. Hesperidin treatment also led to inhibition of cell migration and invasion.
