Natural bioactives, or phytochemicals, generally refer to compounds exclusive to essential nutrients that have specific biological activities in humans. It is known that over 10,000 different phytochemicals possess potential preventive or supplementary effects on various diseases. Studies have shown that natural phytochemicals derived from certain plants have the capability to prevent carcinogenesis. Therefore, new active compounds responsible for the anti-cancer characteristics of dietary plants, and original active compounds exert novel function on anti-carcinogenesis, are important issues in cancer investigation. We invite the researchers to contribute original and review articles regarding the relationship between phytochemicals and cancers, including the discovery of novel anti-cancer phytochemicals and the novel signalling pathways, and signalling molecules of phytochemicals on cancer treatment.
