With emerging trends in the incidence of cancer of various organ sites, additional approaches are needed to control human malignancies. Intervention or prevention of cancer by dietary constituents, a strategy defined as chemoprevention, holds great promise in our conquest to control cancer, because it can be implemented on a broader population base with less economic burden. Consistent with this, several epidemiological studies have shown that populations that consume diets rich in fruits and… Expand

ANTICANCER EFFECTS OF GRAPE SEED EXTRACT ON HUMAN CANCER: A REVIEW
Grape seed extract (GSE) is a complex mixture of several compounds, mostly represented by polyphenols and phenolic acids. Their consumption is safe and is recognized to exert several and meaningfulExpand
Anticancer Effects of Grape Seed Extract on Human Cancers: A Review
TLDR
Promising results obtained in vitro as well as on animal studies suggest that GSE may have a great relevance as source of potential new pharmacological molecules, and could represent an important opportunity for clinical research. Expand
Ginger Phytochemicals Exhibit Synergy to Inhibit Prostate Cancer Cell Proliferation
TLDR
Interestingly, combining GE with its constituents (in particular, 6-gingerol) resulted in significant augmentation of GE's antiproliferative activity, generating compelling grounds for further preclinical evaluation of GE alone and in combination with individual ginger biophenols for prostate cancer management. Expand
Potential Anticancer Properties of Grape Antioxidants
TLDR
It is demonstrated that consumption of grape, wine and grape juice exerts many health-promoting and possible anti-cancer effects and grape skin and seed extracts have great potential in cancer prevention and further investigation into this exciting field is warranted. Expand
Phytochemicals in Cancer Prevention: A Review of the Evidence
TLDR
Regular intake of phytochemicals has been demonstrated to prevent cancer during its different stages including initiation, promotion and progression and Considering the animal models, the second step is the main stage for cancer chemoprevention. Expand
Potent anti-cancer effects of citrus peel flavonoids in human prostate xenograft tumors.
TLDR
The findings suggest that GL is an effective anti-cancer agent that may potentially serve as a novel therapeutic option for prostate cancer treatment. Expand

Insight is provided into the molecular basis of potential chemopreventive and therapeutic activities of dietary polyphenols with emphasis in their ability to control intracellular signalling cascades considered as relevant targets in a cancer preventive approach. Expand
Grape Seed Extract Inhibits In vitro and In vivo Growth of Human Colorectal Carcinoma Cells
TLDR
GSE may be an effective chemopreventive agent against colorectal cancer, and that growth inhibitory and apoptotic effects of GSE could be mediated via an up-regulation of Cip1/p21. Expand
Chemoprevention by grape seed extract and genistein in carcinogen-induced mammary cancer in rats is diet dependent.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that GSE is chemopreventive in an animal model of breast cancer; moreover, the diet dependency of the chemopareventive activity for both GSE and genistein suggests that whether or not a compound isChemopreventionive may depend on the diet in which the agent is administered.

TLDR
In SKH-1 hairless mice, dietary supplementation with GSPs is associated with a decrease of UVB-induced skin tumor development in terms of tumor incidence, tumor multiplicity, and a decrease in the malignant transformation of papillomas to carcinomas, and it is suggested that dietary G SPs could be useful in the attenuation of the adverse UV-induced health effects in human skin.

Potential of resveratrol in anticancer and anti-inflammatory therapy.
TLDR
Resveratrol possesses good potential to be used as an adjunctive or alternative therapy for cancer and inflammatory diseases and has been shown to produce no adverse effects, even when consumed at high concentrations. Expand
Inhibition of prostate cancer growth by muscadine grape skin extract and resveratrol through distinct mechanisms.
TLDR
The results show that MSKE and resveratrol target distinct pathways to inhibit prostate cancer cell growth in this system and that the unique properties of MSKE suggest that it may be an important source for further development of chemopreventive or therapeutic agents against prostate cancer. Expand
Natural products as inhibitors of carcinogenesis
TLDR
Despite the obstacles that must be overcome before chemopreventive drugs become an integral component of standard medical practice for cancer prophylaxis, there is vast potential for significant improvement in cancer morbidity and mortality through the use of natural products as inhibitors of carcinogenesis.
