  With the increasing level of the carcinogenic and mutagenic substances in the environment, the research to explore new anticancer compounds has become crucial day after day. Although, many chemical anticancer agents are available, the wide spectrum side effects and emergence of chemotherapy resistant cancer cells among patients have made cancer research and discovery of new anticancer agents from natural products particularly medicinal plants pivotal. This review highlights the cancer research led to new natural anticancer agents discovered by Asian scientists in the period from 2000 to 2008. This review focuses also on the evidence based scientific research that proved the importance of dietary habits particularly the vegetarian diet as a potent factor in reducing the risk of carcinogenesis. Many components isolated from plants have been approved to be potent anticancer agents. The plant-derived polyphenolic compounds are promising nutraceuticals for control of various disorders and cancer. These compounds may be the future developing anticancer drugs with no side effect and low cost for people all around the world. The much lower risk of colon, prostate and breast cancers in Asians, who consume more vegetables, fruits and tea than populations in the western hemisphere, raises the role of flavonoid components as protective factors against carcinogenesis.

  Infectious bursal disease is still a challenging issue by posing a serious threat to the commercial poultry industry especially due to the emergence of highly Infectious Bursal Disease Virus (IBDV). In the present study, we evaluated the immunomodulatory effects of Tryptophan (Trp) on innate, humoral and cellular immune responses in chickens challenged by oral administration of intermediate plus strain of IBD virus at 28 days of age. A corn-soybean meal based diet containing different levels of Trp (0, 0.10 and 0.20) for the starter, (0, 0.07 and 0.15) for the grower and (0, 0.05 and 0.13) for the finisher has been utilized. In a completely randomized design with three treatments of five replicates each and 10 chickens per replicate, 150 Cobb 500 male broiler chickens from 0-49 days of age were subjected to Trp diet. To measure the innate, cellular and humoral immunity indicators (interferon-α, interferon-γ, immunoglobulin G, respectively) at 27, 35, 42 and 49 days of age, serum samples from each replicate of treatments were collected and subjected to ELISA. The result showed that Trp supplementation in the chickens basal diets significantly increased the serum levels of interferon-α at 35, 42 and 49 days of age (p<0.05), interferon-γ at 27, 35 and 49 days of age (p<0.05) and immunoglobulin G at 27, 35, 42 and 49 days of age (p<0.05). These results strongly suggest that tryptophan plays a vital role in modulation of protective immune response against IBDV.

  In order to study the effect of Tryptophan (Trp) on growth performance and blood parameters of broiler chickens, an in vivo experiment was conducted. A corn-soybean meal based diet containing different levels of Trp (0, 0.10 and 0.20) for the starter, (0, 0.07 and 0.15) for the grower and (0, 0.05 and 0.13) for the finisher was used. In a completely randomized design with three treatments of five replicates each and 10 chickens per replicate, 150 Cobb500 male broiler chickens from 0-49 days of age were subjected to Trp diet. Growth performance (body weight gain, feed intake and feed, gain ratio) and blood serum (albumin, total protein, glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride, urea, uric acid, aspartate amino-transferase, alanine amino-transferase, alkalin phosphatase, lactic dehydrogenase and creatine kinase) parameters were measured at 27 and 49 days of age. As the result showed the increase of dietary Trp elevated (p<0.05) body weight gain, feed intake, albumin, total protein, glucose, urea and uric acid and decreased (p>0.05) feed gain ratio, aspartate amino-transferase, lactic dehydrogenase, triglyceride and cholesterol. Therefore, we conclude that dietary Trp might have positive effects on health status of the broiler chickens.
