Abstract

In this exploratory systematic review, we present the evidence recorded in the literature, that autophagy can generate both a procancer and anticancer action, acting through various mechanisms in which the autophagy process can be increased, decreased, or altered, through the activation of intracellular signaling pathways. Currently, there is sufficient evidence to support the association between autophagy and different types of cancer, however, there is no review that brings together the various mechanisms by which the autophagic process participates in its development and/or suppression. It was possible to show that there are various mechanisms by which autophagy participates in the development of oral carcinogenesis, influencing both the inhibition and the production of cancer. It is of great importance to increase the knowledge about this process because it could be used as a valuable tool in the treatment of this disease.
