Bentham Science Publishers

The current book series discusses the advancement in effective cancer therapy and deals with the developments of new drugs and new patented targets, agents and synthetic compounds. The following areas have been highlighted in this volume:

  • Recent patent literature reveals the role of estrogen as endocrine disruptor through inhibition of the AF1 Domain of liganded and unliganded Estrogen Receptors (ERs).

  • Natural and potent synthetic phenazines patent derivatives with substituent groups i.e. alkyl, amide, carboxylic acid, aldehyde, and pyrano groups show potent anticancer activities.

  • The potential role of ShcA proteins in stimulating metastasis and advancement of cancer will offer the new tools for cancer therapy. New approaches and challenges for cancer stem cell aiming at cancer therapy is included in this volume.

  • The anti-tumor activity of mono Bcl-2 inhibitors and Bcl-2 inhibitors in combination with rapologs will be a novel beneficial invention for the cure of advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) as well as other cancer.

The diversity of research topics published in this series will be valuable for cancer researchers, clinicians and cancer professionals aiming to develop new anti-cancer targets and patents for the treatment of various cancers.
