Abstract


The anticancer potential of berries has been related, at least in part, to a multitude of bioactive phytochemicals. Anticancer effects of berry bioactive are partially mediated through their abilities to counteract, reduce, and also repair damage resulting from oxidative stress and inflammation. To explore the role of angiogenesis we used SPIP (scanning probe image processor) for quantification of results. 0.7% concentration of strawberry juice showed a marked anti-angiogenic effect. There was decrease in diameter of primary, secondary, tertiary blood vessels and decrease in roughness parameters.
