Introduction

The areas of interest in carcinogenesis are cell cycle progression, mitogenic and cell survival signaling, and apoptosis, tumor angiogenesis, DNA damage/repair and organ specific carcinogenesis, including that of lung,prostate, etc. Discovering and evaluating anticancer activities of small molecules and plant extracts and providing scientific basis (mechanisms) for their effectiveness in controlling carcinogenesis is a priority area of research. Of specific importance is the understanding of mechanisms at all levels viz.,molecular, cellular and organ levels in both in vitro as well as in vivo systems by using latest techniques. The goal is to develop mechanism-based non-toxic anticancer agents for their potential use in cancer management.
