Table 2 Correlation between antioxidant activities and angiostatic activities of bee products

From: Bee products prevent VEGF-induced angiogenesis in human umbilical vein endothelial cells

  Antioxidant activities (μg/ml) Angiostatic activities (μg/ml)
Caffeic acid phenethyl ester 3.6 0.3
Chinese red propolis 18.5 3.0
Bee pollen 196.7 100.0
Royal jelly - 300.0
  1. Antioxidant activities show the DPPH radical scavenging activities of bee products. These data represents the values of IC50. Angiostatic activities are represented by the minimal concentrations at which each bee products suppresses all of parameters against VEGF-induced tube formation. Data of antioxidant activities in this table were partially modified from Izuta et al. [21].
