The antiangiogenic effects of UA 5 were observed in mice bearing melanoma B16 F10 cells, with decrease in the levels of VEGF, MMP-2, MMP-9, and NO [178]; in colorectal cancer cells, in a dose-dependent manner [179]; and in hepatoma cell lines, with decreased mRNA expression of the HIF1a, VEGF, IL-8, and uPA, and in the production of ROS and NO [113]. 44 Studies in Natural Products Chemistry SEMISYNTHETIC PENTACYCLIC TRITERPENOIDS AND CANCER Semisynthetic Derivatives of Betulin and Betulinic Acid Betulin 1 derivatives were mainly modified in carbons C3 and C28, although modifications of rings A and E were performed.

UA 5 has chemopreventive effects in mammary carcinoma [174]. UA 5 prevented the induction of COX-2 and the synthesis of prostaglandin E2 in human mammary epithelial cells treated with phorbol 12-myristate-13-acetate [175]. However, UA 5 was ineffective in the inhibition of the mammary tumorigenesis induced by DMBA in rats [176]. UA 5 inhibited endothelial cell proliferation with an IC50 of 5 mM and has inhibitory effects on the angiogenic process in CAM [112,177]. Treatment of different hepatic cancer cell lines with low doses of UA 5 decreased the levels of VEGF and ICAM-1, two important molecules for angiogenesis and invasion in cancer [89].
