Among polyphenolic compounds, hydroxycinnamic acids (e.g. ferulic and caffeic acids) are a well-known group of phytochemicals present in human diet in significant amounts involved in the defense against deleterious oxidative damage. In the present study, the anti-inflammatory (cycloxygenase-2, COX-2, inhibition) and anticancer properties of the..
