Abstract:

BACKGROUND: This study will investigate the effect of shikonin on the proliferation and apoptosis of human ovarian cancer cell SKOV3 (HOCC-SKOV3).

METHODS: We will retrieve potential studies from inception to the March 1, 2020 in Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, EMBASE, Scopus, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, WANGFANG, and China National Knowledge In-frastructure. There are not restrictions related to the language and publication status. This study will include case-controlled studies (CCSs) or randomized controlled studies (RCSs) that examine the effect of shikonin on the proliferation and apoptosis of HOCC-SKOV3. Two researchers will independently identify literatures, extract data, and appraise study quality. Any disagreements will be resolved by discussion with another researcher. RevMan 5.3 software will be placed to perform statistical analysis.

RESULTS: This study will summarize the present evidence to test the effect of shikonin on the proliferation and apoptosis of HOCC-SKOV3.

CONCLUSION: It will provide evidence to investigate the effect of shikonin on the proliferation and apoptosis of HOCC-SKOV3, and will supply reference for further study.Systematic review registration: INPLASY202040146.
