Studies concerned with synthetic methods, and routes to certain important biosynthetic products comprise related areas of interest. Specific Research Interests: Chemistry of natural products (peptides, nucleotides, and steroids), cancer chemotherapy (anticancer agents from arthropods, marine animals and plants), and total synthesis of natural. As effective as chemotherapy and radiation can be in the treatment of cancer, both come with a wide variety of well-known side effects. Nausea, vomiting and gastrointestinal symptoms are common, because rapidly dividing cells of the mucous membranes of the mouth, stomach and the intestines are often destroyed along with the cancer cells.

Paclitaxel injection is used to treat advanced cancer of the ovaries, breast, non-small cell lung cancer, and Kaposi sarcoma. Kaposi sarcoma is a cancer of the skin and mucous membranes that is commonly found in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

With the incidence of cancer in the United States increasing to % incompared to the % yearly rate experienced for decades, Dr. Rauscher, Jr., Director of the National Cancer Institute, has estimated that more than 10 million people will be under treatment for cancer and nearly 4 million will expire from cancer in this decade.

The purpose of Volumes 1 and 2 of this work was to provide useful reviews of current progress in discovery and clinical applica­ tion of new biosynthetic cancer chemotherapeutic drugs. Volume 1 gave a general view of the cancer problem and cancer treatment using biosynthetic products, based on literature available through December An overall view of the cancer problem and development of cancer chemothera­ peutic biosynthetic products to February was presented in Volume 1.

In the short time that has elapsed since the preparation of Volume 1, several very stimulating advances in application of biosynthetic cancer chemotherapeutic drugs in cancer treatment have Format: Paperback.

An immense number of secondary metabolites (SMs) exist in nature, originating from plants, bacteria, fungi and marine life forms, serving as drugs for the treatment of many life‐threatening diseases, including cancer [1–4].Taxol, vinblastine, vincristine, podophyllotoxin and camptothecin, for example, are typically well‐known drugs used in cancer treatment, which are of plant by: 3.

The pharmaceutically important anticancer drugs etoposide and teniposide are derived from podophyllotoxin, a natural product isolated from roots of Podophyllum hexandrum growing in the wild.

The overexploitation of this endangered plant has led to the search for alternative sources. Metabolic engineering aimed at constructing the pathway in another host cell is very Cited by: 2.
