Review on Functions of Dietary Agents and Plants in Cancer Prevention and Treatment

Neelam Singla, Sunyana Jain, Monica Kachroo, Ashima Gakhar.


Over 60% of the current anticancer drugs have their origin from natural sources. Natural products,
dietary flavonoids and other polyphenols have an important role as chemo-preventive agents.
These substances are compounds with different chemical entities and many of these are present
in plants with medicinal value and in various fruits and vegetables commonly consumed by
humans. The essential role played by natural products and dietary agents in the discovery and
development of effective anticancer agents and the importance of multidisciplinary collaboration
in the generation and optimization of novel molecular leads from natural product sources will
be reviewed.
