OBJECTIVE: To investigate the inhibitory effect of resveratrol on the metastasis-associated ability of human highly metastatic ovarian carcinoma HO-8910PM cells in vitro. METHODS: MTf assay was used to examine the cytotoxicity of resveratrol in HO-8910PM cells; Transwell Chamber assay was performed to determine the effect on invasion and migratory capacity of the cells by resveratrol; Effect on adhesion potential of HO-8910PM cells was tested by cell-Matrigel adhesion assay. RESULTS: Resveratrol showed no cytotoxicity on HO-8910PM cells after 6 h treatment. Resveratrol significantly inhibited migration and adhesion capacity of HO-8910PM cells in vitro. Their inhibitory rates after treated with the chemical of 100 micromol/L for 6 h were (30. 1 +/- 10. 8) % ,(34. 27 +/- 1. 28)% , respectively. However, Resveratrol had no effect on invasion capacity of HO-8910PM cells. CONCLUSION: Resveratrol can inhibit the migration and adhesion of HO-8910PM cells in vitro. Resveratrol might be a potential drug to inhibit tumor metastasis.
