Carcinogenesis is the term used to describe the process by which a normal cell is converted to cancer cell. This is a slow and continues process which is raised due to continues mutations by different agents. A cancerous cell has the property to replicate in an uncontrolled manner and its apoptosis mechanism is suppressed, hence resulting in continues growth. Extensive studies has been carried out to deduced the actual suppression in the apoptosis mechanism and has been found that, the all the pathway that will result in apoptosis has been suppressed. Thus contributing to evasion on apoptosis. Hence scientists as devised anticancer drugs that targets the cells and induces apoptosis. These new classes of anti- cancer drugs are used in cancer treatment. These recent advancements are shared among the scientific society in the form of articles. This article reaches the scientific at their bench via internet. Open access publishing has paved the way for many research publications. Open access publishers are those groups who charge the authors for publication but do not charge the reader. They can view the articles for free. There are different types among open access publishing methods.
