Summary of "Molecular Identification of Phytochemical for Anticancer Treatment."

Cancer commands the second highest global mortality rate and causes severe public health problems. Recent advances have been made in cancer therapy but incidence of the disease remains high. Research on more efficient treatment methods with reduced side effects is necessary. Historically, edible plants have been used as traditional medicines for various diseases. These demonstrate the potential of natural products as sources of bioactive compounds for anticancer treatment. Anticancer properties of phytochemicals are attributed to bioactive compounds in plant extracts which suppress cancerous cell proliferation and growth by inducing both cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. This review presents a summary of the molecular identification of phytochemicals with anticancer properties and details their action mechanisms and molecular targets. Moreover, the effects of natural product on both immunomodulatory and anticancer properties are provided.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

In vivo methods of screening investigative anticancer drugs, biologic response modifiers or radiotherapies. Human tumor tissue or cells are transplanted into mice or rats followed by tumor treatment regimens. A variety of outcomes are monitored to assess antitumor effectiveness.

In vivo method of screening investigative anticancer drugs and biologic response modifiers for individual cancer patients. Fresh tumor tissue is implanted under the kidney capsule of immunocompetent mice or rats; gross and histological assessments follow several days after tumor treatment in situ.

MOLECULAR BIOLOGY techniques used in the diagnosis of disease. Included are such techniques as IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION of chromosomes for CYTOGENETIC ANALYSIS; OLIGONUCLEOTIDE ARRAY SEQUENCE ANALYSIS of gene expression patterns in disease states; identification of pathogenic organisms by analysis of species specific DNA sequences; and detection of mutations with POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION.

Non-optimal interval of time between onset of symptoms, identification, and initiation of treatment.

A diagnostic technique that incorporates the measurement of molecular diffusion (such as water or metabolites) for tissue assessment by MRI. The degree of molecular movement can be measured by changes of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) with time, as reflected by tissue microstructure. Diffusion MRI has been used to study BRAIN ISCHEMIA and tumor response to treatment.
