Series: Horizons in Cancer Research

BISAC: MED062000

This compilation includes details about recent innovations in the field of cancer treatment as well as best practices for managing the disease in various forms. The first chapter deals with the potential anticancer properties of the plant Trigonella foenum-graecum, also known as fenugreek. Following this, the authors provide clinically relevant information on physical therapy for women with breast cancer as well as targeted therapy for metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. Then, the authors discuss the evolution of the field of systematic therapy for urothelial cancer, which ranges from chemotherapy to immune checkpoint inhibitor use. The final chapter highlights the chemo-preventive efficacy of phytochemicals in modulating the epigenetic mechanisms involved in the initiation and progression of cancer.
