Special Issue "Antioxidants, Phytonutrients and Cancer Risk"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (25 November 2021).
As cancer remains one of the leading causes of death worldwide, the hunt for chemopreventive agents and anticancer drugs to complement existing cancer therapies is the subject of ongoing research. Phytochemicals, naturally occurring compounds from plants, have been shown to exert chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic effects in cell lines, animal models and human studies. Their mechanisms of action have been widely explored and include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory effects, epigenetic regulation, cell cycle regulation, immunomodulation, inhibition of cell proliferation, modulation of cell signaling pathways and modulation of the gut microbiota, to name a few. In this Special Issue of Nutrients entitled “Antioxidants, phytonutrients and cancer risk”, we aim to collect and showcase recent findings on this topic with a multidisciplinary and multifaceted approach, with the objective of advancing knowledge in this area. We therefore welcome the submission of manuscripts describing original research or reviewing the scientific literature on this very challenging topic.
