Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Malignant cells are characterized by numerous alterations in multiple signaling pathways that promote proliferation, inhibit apoptosis, promote angiogenesis in the case of solid tumors, and enable cancer cells to invade and migrate through tissues. Bioactive dietary components have been shown to modify all of the major signaling pathways which are deregulated in cancer. Estimates suggest that 30-70% of all cancer cases might be preventable by diet, depending on the dietary components and the specific type of cancer. A better understanding of the bioactive components present in food, the mechanism(s) of action of these dietary components towards cancer prevention, the critical intake of dietary components, duration and when they should be provided to optimize the desired physiological response is needed. The purpose of this special issue is to focus on the role of bioactive food components in cancer prevention.
