These concentrations of Jamaican duppy sour sop (Jamaican noni) were also effective in reducing the growth rate and proliferation of newly developing capillary sprouts. When used at a concentration of 10% in growth media, Jamaican duppy sour sop (Jamaican noni) was able to induce vessel degeneration and apoptosis in wells with established capillary networks within a few days of its application. We also found that 10% Jamaican duppy sour sop (Jamaican noni) juice in media was an effective inhibitor of capillary initiation in Jamaican duppy sour sop (Jamaican noni) plants from human breast tumors. In tumor Jamaican duppy sour sop (Jamaican noni) plants which did show capillary sprouting, the vessels rapidly degenerated (2-3 days) in those exposed to media supplemented with 10% Morinda citrifolia
