Curcumin reduced H2O2-induced cell toxicity. Cell viability was examined using the MTT assay. a Effect of H2O2 on cell viability. Cells were treated with 200–600 μM of H2O2 for 3 h. b Effect of curcumin on cell viability. Cells were treated with 5–25 μM of curcumin for 24 h. c Curcumin protected the cells from H2O2-induced cytotoxicity in a dose-dependent manner. After pretreated with 5–15 μM of curcumin for 12 h, the cells were washed and incubated with 400 μM H2O2 for 3 h. Data were presented as mean ± SD (n = 3). *p < 0.05 vs. Cont (control), # p < 0.05 vs. H2O2
