Non Herbal Nutraceutical, Probiotic, Vitamins and Fatty Acids in Cancer
Cancer is a multifactorial disease characterized by uncontrolled cell growth and the acquisition of metastatic properties. Globally, cancer remains a major human health problem. Therefore, it is very important to prevent or treat different types of cancer. In recent years, significant advances in anticancer therapy have involved the use of many plant-derived compounds or structural analogues derived from them. Medicinal plants, together with non-herbal nutraceuticals (e.g., fatty acids, probiotic), constitute a fundamental source of active ingredients capable of providing new molecules with anticancer activity and new molecular structures capable of inspiring the design of derivatives with improved therapeutic properties. Although many natural products of plant origin have already been isolated and characterized, the molecular mechanisms underlying their therapeutic effects remain unexplored. This Topic aims to contribute original articles and reviews (e.g., comprehensive review and systematic reviews) to the identification of chemopreventive agents that delay or block the carcinogenesis of human cancers.
