Astragalus saponins decreased the invasion and migration ability of BGC-823 cells. A. BGC-823 cell invasion was determined using the transwell invasion assay, which measures the number of cells that migrate through the matrigel into the lower surface of the polycarbonic membrane (100×). Data are presented as the mean of triplicate experiments. B. Cell invasion decreased significantly (*p < 0.05) in a dose-dependent manner in Astragalus saponins -treated cells compared with the control group.
