Omega-3 fatty acids as cancer chemopreventive agents

Pharmacology & Therapeutics

Nov 27, 1999

D P Rose, J M Connolly

Abstract

There is both epidemiologic and experimental evidence that the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids (FAs), which occur at high levels in some fish oils, exert protective effects against some common cancers, notably those of breast, colon, and, perhaps, prostate. Multiple mechanisms are involv...read more

Apoptosis in Cancer

Apoptosis is an important mechanism in cancer. By evading apoptosis, tumors can continue to grow without regulation and metastasize systemically. Many therapies are evaluating the use of pro-apoptotic activation to eliminate cancer growth. Here is the latest research on apoptosis in cancer.

Intestinal Parasites & Cancer

Parasitic diseases may affect several hallmarks of cancer. Understanding how these parasites promote oncogenesis will aid in the development of novel treatments for infection-associated malignancy. Discover the latest research on parasites and cancer here.

Apoptosis

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis
