Chemoprevention of Cancer and DNA Damage by Dietary Factors
edited by
Siegfried Knasmuller

Chemoprevention of Cancer and DNA Damage by Dietary Factors provides comprehensive coverage of all important aspects of chemoprevention of cancer and DNA-damage by dietary factors.

Special emphasis is given to:

  • different molecular mechanisms of cancer prevention by dietary factors
  • a variety of experimental approaches to study its preventive functions in vitro and in vivo
  • the description of molecular mechanisms of defined nutritional ingredients
