Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: metabolic disturbances; IGFs and epithelial cancers
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue is the continuation of our previous special issue "The Role of the IGF Axis in the Disease".
This research topic aims to highlight the key roles that members of the IGF axis (ligands, IGFBPs, and receptors) play in the risk and progression of cancer and how these roles are often exacerbated by disturbed metabolic status. It will encompass their roles in cancer risk and how they utilise the hallmarks of cancer, such as angiogenesis, proliferation, metabolism and survival, to drive tumour development and potential approaches to target this axis.
