Abstract

The Angiogenic effect of Citrullus lanatus using whole fruit crude extract was tested using a 12-day old duck embryo CAM assay. The extraction of fruit extract was obtained to produce the desired concentration such as T₀ (control), T₁ (25%), T₂ (50%), T₃ (75%), T₄ (100%). The results indicated that through the administration of various fruit extract of Citrullus lanatus has varying effects to the number of new blood vessels in a 12-day old duck embryo. T₄ is the only treatment which is the best candidate for angiogenesis. Therefore Citrullus lanatus (watermelon) is capable of angiogenesis due to its phyto-chemical components, the higher the concentration, the more effective in controlling angiogenesis. Lower concentration of the extract administered means lesser effect therefore the concentration must be increased.
