The purpose this study was to test the efficacy of Curcumin- CD and Curcumin-CD-F127, two synthesized drugs that were designed to make curcumin water soluble. Using an MTT Assay, Curcumin-CD and Curcumin-CD-F127 were tested on two human cell lines, U-251 and NS-1. The cells were exposed to three different concentrations for both drugs: 10 mg/ml, 5 mg/ml, and 2.5 mg/ml. After completing the study, it was found that the drugs were effective against glioblastoma, but only at the higher concentrations.
