The role of natural products as the valuable source of structurally diverse compounds possessing therapeutic potential for the treatment of human diseases and disorders has gained incredible interest in the last few decades. More and more doctors, researchers and scientists are looking for novel compounds focusing on plants used in traditional medicine. Recently a large number of studies have been reported on the benefits of natural products which are present in high quantities in medicinal and aromatic plants, fruits and vegetables. This harangue will concentrate on an assortment of theme related to the use of natural products in cancer chemoprevention, distinct chemical substances derived from plants that are considered as anticancer agent, simple synthetic modifications or copies of the naturally occurring substances, structural optimization of derivatives or analogues to stop carcinogenesis, association of anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and radical scavenging properties of natural products with reduced risk of cancer and innovation and extent of natural products to act as potential chemopreventive and/or chemotherapeutic agents. In addition, attendees of this talk will be accustomed with the efficacy of natural products against carcinogenesis, latest research in cancer chemoprevention and treatment using natural products, pertinent molecular mechanisms involved in the pharmacological effects of natural products, challenges and opportunities.
Suaib Luqman has extensively studied the role of molecules/natural products from medicinal and aromatic plants for their cancer chemopreventive and/or chemotherapeutic efficacy. He has authored more than 60 peer-reviewed papers, 2 book chapters and 70 presentation at various symposia/ conferences and seminars. Luqman is a member on the editorial boards for the Annals of Phytomedicine and Conference Papers in Pharmacology. He has served as a member of National Advisory Committee for VIII National Conference on Biotechnology, Biodiversity & Environment and numerous selection and assessment committees for CSIR-CIMAP and various universities, including his current membership with the National Academy of Sciences, India.
