A commercial food supplement called Citozym (CIZ), was tested for antiproliferative activity against estrogen receptor (ER)-positive MCF-7 and (ER)-negative BT-20 human breast cancer cells, performing two independent experiments using SRB assay. A CIZ concentration of 100mg/mL, showed the most potent antiproliferative activity for cells in a potential range for further investigation on estrogen-insensitive breast cancer therapy
