Accumulating evidences report the potential of dietary flavonoids for both chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic effects which act on regulation of redox status, cellular proliferation, differentiation, programmed cell death, inflammation angiogenesis and metastasis. Some of them display synergy effect in combination of conventional therapies for drug-resistant cancer cells. In this chapter, we summarize recent knowledge and the underlying mechanism on chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic activities of dietary flavonoids that may offer effective approach for the control of cancer incidence.

Quercetin is reported to inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells by induction of G2/M cell cycle arrest via downregulation of β-catenin/T cell factor (Tcf) transcriptional activity, thus decreasing gene expression of both cyclin D1 and survivin that involved in cell cycle progression (Shan et al. 2009). Quercetin also induces apoptosis through targeting on epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) signaling in HT-29 colon cancer cells (Kim et al.
