Chemoprevention is considered a new strategy in fighting diverse types of cancer. To influence cancer development and progression, signaling pathways, for example, enzymes like cyclooxygenase-2, transcription factors like NF-kB, and several metabolic processes leading to activation or deactivation of carcinogenic agents, are envisaged as promising approaches. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes activate xenobiotics and thus contribute to the generation of potent carcinogens. Accordingly, inhibition…

Bioactive Chromone Derivatives – Structural Diversity
The present work aims at reviewing the main reported studies on the cytoprotective and anticancer activities of chromone derivatives, with particular emphasis on the effect of their structural features and conformational behaviour on activity, which is the basis of a tailored design of novel chromone-based antioxidants for chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic purposes.
Design and Synthesis of Structure-Simplified Derivatives of Gonytolide for the Promotion of Innate Immune Responses.
Gonytolide A (1), a dimeric chromanone substituted with the γ-lactone, shows promoting activity of innate immune responses. However, biological studies on this compound have been limited by the low

Chemopreventive Herbal Anti-Oxidants: Current Status and Future Perspectives
Dietary agents or herbal anti-oxidants due to low toxicity and relative safety are promising chemopreventive agents, however, in clinical trials these compounds have met with limited success.
Potential cancer chemopreventive in vitro activities of monomeric xanthone derivatives from the marine algicolous fungus Monodictys putredinis.
Investigation of the fungal strain Monodictys putredinis isolated from the inner tissue of a marine green alga led to the isolation of four new monomeric xanthones and a benzophenone, which were examined for their cancer chemopreventive potential.
Cyclooxygenases, prostanoids, and tumor progression
Aberrant expression and functions of several prostanoid synthetic enzymes in cancer will be discussed and the possible regulation of tumor progression by prostaglandins and their receptors will also be discussed.
Anthraquinones with quinone reductase-inducing activity and benzophenones from Morinda citrifolia (noni) roots.
Two new benzophenones, morintrifolins A and B, together with 14 known anthraquinones and four other known compounds, were isolated from a chloroform-soluble extract of Morinda citrifolia roots, showing quinone reductase (QR)- inducing activity in Hepa lclc7 cells.
The tumour microenvironment as a target for chemoprevention
New data indicate that primary dysfunction in the tumour microenvironment, in addition to epithelial dysfunction, can be crucial for carcinogenesis. These recent findings make a compelling case for
