This volume provides summarized scientific evidence of the different classes of plant-derived phytocompounds, their sources, chemical structures, anticancer properties, mechanisms of action, methods of extraction, and their applications in cancer therapy. It also discusses endophyte-derived compounds as chemopreventives to treat various cancer types. In addition, it provides detailed information on the enhanced production of therapeutically valuable anticancer metabolites using biotechnological interventions such as plant cell and tissue culture approaches, including in vitro-, hairy root- and cell-suspension culture; and metabolic engineering of biosynthetic pathways. Anticancer Plants: Natural Products and Biotechnological Implements – Volume 2” explores the natural bioactive compounds isolated from plants as well as fungal endophytes, their chemistry, and preventive effects to reduce the risk of cancer. Moreover, it highlights the genomics/proteomics approaches and biotechnological implementations. Providing solutions to deal with the challenges involved in cancer therapy, the book benefits a wide range of readers including academics, students, and industrial experts working in the area of natural products, medicinal plant chemistry, pharmacology, and biotechnology.

Anticancer Treatments and Cardiotoxicity: Mechanisms, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Interventions presents cutting edge research on the adverse cardiac effects of both radiotherapy and chemotherapy, brought together by leaders in the field. Cancer treatment-related cardiotoxicity is the leading cause of treatment-associated mortality in cancer survivors and is one of the most common post-treatment issues among survivors of adult cancer. Early detection of the patients prone to developing cardiotoxicity, taking in to account the type of treatment, history and other risk factors, is essential in the fight to decrease cardiotoxic mortality. This illustrated reference describes the most effective diagnostic and imaging tools to evaluate and predict the development of cardiac dysfunction for those patients undergoing cancer treatment. In addition, new guidelines on imaging for the screening and monitoring of these patients are also presented. Anticancer Treatments and Cardiotoxicity is an essential reference for those involved in the research and treatment of cardiovascular toxicity. Provides algorithms essential for the use of imaging, and biomarkers for the screening and monitoring of patients Written by world-leading experts in the field of cardiotoxicity Includes high-quality images, case studies, and test questions Describes the most effective diagnostic and imaging tools to evaluate and predict the development of cardiac dysfunction for those patients undergoing cancer treatment
