Special Issue "Cancer Associated Coagulation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
This Special Issue aims to encompass research in all aspects of cancer-associated coagulation, from understanding the mechanisms of tumour-driven hypercoagulopathy to advances in anticoagulant treatment and patient management. Certain tumours, such as those of the pancreas and ovaries, are associated with an increased risk of the patient developing venous thromboembolism and this risk increases further with chemotherapy by mechanisms currently being investigated. Patients are managed with the use of anticoagulants such as low-molecular-weight heparin or orally administered alternatives. Of particular interest is the role of extracellular vesicles within these processes and also research investigating the impact of COVID-19, although studies on all aspects of cancer-associated coagulation are welcome.
