<p>a. Prostate cancer cells were treated with MEM for 24/48h, and cell viability was determined by MTT assay. Table shows the IC<sub>50</sub> of <i>CWR</i>22Rν1, C<sub>4-2</sub>, PC-3 and DU145 at 24 and 48h. Mean ± SD of experiments performed in triplicate is shown. <b>b.</b> Dose-dependent effect of MEM on clonogenecity of <i>CWR</i>22Rν1 and C<sub>4-2</sub> cells as detected by colony formation assay. Details are described in material methods. <b>c.</b> Effect of various fractions (n-hexane, ethyl acetate, n-butanol and aqueous) on viability of <i>CWR</i>22R ν1 cells, determined by MTT assay. *p<0.05 and **p<0.01 was considered statistically significant.</p
