Bitter melon extract (BME) is known to inhibit breast cancer cells (MCF-7) proliferation. Due to the high metabolic rate of cancer cells, we hypothesized that low glucose levels are detrimental to cell survivability and that BME exerts a cytotoxic effect by altering the capability of a cell to utilize glucose. Through this study, we seek to investigate if insulin is capable of mitigating the cytotoxic effects of BME and provide a “rescue effect” that increases cell viability, or even completely reverses the cytotoxic effects of BME.
