He has been involved in the research on curcumin, for which human trials are on, following the success of animal trials. According to information available in medical journals, nearly 62% of cancer patients in the US prefer to consume medicines made of natural compounds.

"Cancer is a complex disease. No therapy is a silver bullet. It has to be a combination. So, we're looking at options that can make treatment more effective," Anant said.
