Special Issue "Advances in Gynecological Cancers"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2021).
Clinical management of gynecological cancers has developed rapidly during the last few years due to the identification of their molecular pathogeneses. Novel compounds have provided a survival benefit through randomized clinical trials and have been approved by regulatory authorities. However, the progress has a major impact on patients with a deficiency in DNA repair mechanisms that bear sensitivity to either PARP inhibitors or immune checkpoint inhibitors. There is an unmet medical need to gain insight into the molecular pathogenesis in DNA repair-proficient patients as well as to understand the mechanisms of resistance in novel compounds. Under this perspective, this Special Issue aims to describe current advances in the diagnosis and management of gynecological cancers as well as challenges in clinical and translational research that will lead to improvements in the survival of patients.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
