Ebook: Topics in Anti-Cancer-Research Volume 3 by Atta-ur-Rahman / Khurshid Zaman


This is the third volume of the Patent eBook Series entitled Topics in Anti-Cancer Research. This eBook comprises updated reviews on topics relevant to modern cancer research published in the journal Recent Patents on Anti-Cancer Drug Discovery.

The comprehensive range of themes covered in this third volume will be of benefit to clinicians, scientists and R&D experts looking for new targets for the prevention of cancer and discovery of drugs for the treatment of different cancer types. Regulation of tumor cells by TRAIL receptors, development of anti- cancer drugs & immunomodulatory drugs, molecular studies of adrenocortical cancer, role of inhibitors of inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase in cancer, recent updates in glioblastoma stem cells, latest approaches for cancer gene therapy and metabolic therapy for cancer were reviewed and updated. The role of pH regulation and application of hyperthermia, thiosemicarbazone derivatives, tamoxifen-based therapies for cancer treatment andproteome-based complex therapy of tumors, calcium signaling and angiogenesis, antineoplastic role of GHRH antagonists and therapeutic applications in human tumors and clinical oncology have been extensively discussed in the light of recent innovations.

The topics covered in this third volume will be valuable for those interested in scientists interests in methods for the prevention of cancer as well its management

‘Circulatory Estrogen Level Protects Against Breast Cancer in Obese Women’ by Zsuzsanna Suba


Literary data suggest apparently ambiguous interaction between menopausal status and obesity-associated breast cancer risk based on the principle of the carcinogenic capacity of estrogen. Before menopause, breast cancer incidence is relatively low and adiposity is erroneously regarded as a protective factor against this tumor conferred by the obesity associated defective estrogen-synthesis. By contrast, in postmenopausal cases, obesity presents a strong risk factor for breast cancer being mistakenly attributed to the presumed excessive estrogen-production of their adipose-tissue mass. Obesity is associated with dysmetabolism and endangers the healthy equilibrium of sexual hormone-production and regular menstrual cycles in women, which are the prerequisites not only for reproductive capacity but also for somatic health. At the same time, literary data support that anovulatory infertility is a very strong risk for breast cancer in young women either with or without obesity. In the majority of premenopausal women, obesity associated insulin resistance is moderate and may be counteracted by their preserved circulatory estrogen level. Consequently, it is not obesity but rather the still sufficient estrogen-level, which may be protective against breast cancer in young adult females. In obese older women, never using hormone replacement therapy (HRT) the breast cancer risk is high, which is associated with their continuous estrogen loss and increasing insulin-resistance. By contrast, obese postmenopausal women using HRT, have a decreased risk for breast cancer as the protective effect of estrogen-substitution may counteract to their obesity associated systemic alterations. The revealed inverse correlation between circulatory estrogen-level and breast cancer risk in obese women should advance our understanding of breast cancer etiology and promotes primary prevention measures. New patents recommend various methods for the prevention and treatment of obesity-related systemic disorders and the associated breast cancer.

Recently Published Issue of the Journal Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry

Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry is a forum for the review of areas of keen and topical interest to medicinal chemists and others in the allied disciplines. Each issue is solely devoted to a specific topic, containing six to nine reviews, which provide the reader a comprehensive survey of that area. A Guest Editor who is an expert in the topic under review, will assemble each issue. The scope of Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry will cover all areas of medicinal chemistry, including current developments in rational drug design, synthetic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, high-throughput screening, combinatorial chemistry, compound diversity measurements, drug absorption, drug distribution, metabolism, new and emerging drug targets, natural products, pharmacogenomics, and structure-activity relationships. Medicinal chemistry is a rapidly maturing discipline. The study of how structure and function are related is absolutely essential to understanding the molecular basis of life. Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry aims to contribute to the growth of scientific knowledge and insight, and facilitate the discovery and development of new therapeutic agents to treat debilitating human disorders. The journal is essential for every medicinal chemist who wishes to be kept informed and up-to-date with the latest and most important advances.
