Role of Nutraceuticals in Chemoresistance to Cancer, Volume Two, focuses on nutraceuticals, the compounds derived from natural sources, which are usually multi-targeted as a means to overcome chemoresistance. This book discusses the role of several compounds related to nutraceuticals and chemoresistance, such as curcumin, resveratrol, indole 3-carbinol, tocotrienols, ursolic acid, fisetin, celastrol, gambogic, butein, catechins and silymarin. It is a valuable resource for cancer researchers, oncologists and members of several areas of the biomedical field who are interested in understanding how to use nutraceuticals as a sensitizing agent for chemotherapy.
- Brings updated information on natural compounds used as specific inhibitors of cell signaling pathways as reviewed by experts in the field
- Presents experts analysis and summary of reported and novel findings and potential translational application in cancer patients
- Describes molecular mechanisms with new and helpful approaches for the readers to use in their own investigations
