Abstract

Due to taxonomic positions and special living environments, marine organisms produce secondary metabolites that possess unique structures and biological activities. This review is devoted to recently isolated and/or earlier described marine compounds with potential or established cancer preventive activities, their biological sources, molecular mechanisms of their action, and their associations with human health and nutrition. The review covers literature published in 2003–2013 years and focuses on findings of the last 2 years.
Keywords: marine organisms; secondary metabolites; cancer preventive; chemopreventive; anticarcinogenic; mechanisms of action marine organisms; secondary metabolites; cancer preventive; chemopreventive; anticarcinogenic; mechanisms of action
