REGISTER NOW

Cancer stem cells are a subpopulation of cancer cells that reside underneath the surface. It is like the root system of the cancer, which is responsible for cancer migration, invasion, and chemotherapy resistance. Cancer stem cells also give rise to tumor bulk through continuous self-renewal and differentiation. Understanding stem cell signaling pathways and molecular mechanisms are essential for developing botanical and nutritional therapies. Research shows the unique and very promising effect of these therapies, which target specific cancer signaling pathways responsible for chemotherapy resistance, alterations of cellular metabolism, and impaired apoptosis. In this webinar, we will highlight numerous natural compounds including curcumin, diallyl trisulfide, chrysin, resveratrol, Acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid, Bacoside A apigenin, quercetin, ellagic acid, honokiol, epigallocatechin, and sulforaphane.

During This Webinar, You Will Learn: 

  • The metabolic features and hallmarks of cancer stem cells (CSCs) and the importance of targeting them​
  • Specific stem cell pathways that drive cancer and cause cancer drug resistance​
  • How chemotherapy and radiation induces self-renewal in CSCs​
  • Which tests to run and interpret that tell you if CSCs are present and if so, which ones ​
  • Botanicals and botanical compounds that target CSCs​
  • Dietary foods and food compounds that target CSCs
