Phytochemicals as a Complement to Cancer Chemotherapy: Pharmacological Modulation of the Autophagy-Apoptosis Pathway
TLDR
This review sought to highlight the molecular basis of the autophagic-apoptotic pathway to understand its implication in the pathobiology of cancer, and explore this fundamental cellular process as a druggable anticancer target.
Role of autophagic response induced by major phytochemicals in cancer prevention and treatment
TLDR
Four major phytochemicals namely phenethyl isothiocyanate, capsaicin, withaferin A, genistein and their association with autophagy in cancer chemoprevention are summarized and ideas for further investigation essential to understanding their mechanisms are discussed.
