Special Issue "Nutrition and Cancer: Recent Advances and Future Perspectives"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2022.
Nutrition plays a potential role in cancer, and the relationship between nutrients and cancer is important in studying the mechanisms of tumor growth, survival, and repression. Anticancer drugs play a major role in cancer therapy. However, this strategy has many side effects and the therapeutic obstacle of chemoresistance. Today, many nutrients are being increasingly suggested as effective anticancer agents for cancer therapy and prevention. Several exert powerful anticancer effects via cell-death-related mechanisms such as apoptosis, ER stress, autophagic cell death, necroptosis, endocytosis, cell cycle arrest, antiangiogenic effects, antimetastatic effects, and epigenetic modification. Furthermore, nutrients exert anticancer effects under normoxia and hypoxia and enhance anticancer effects via diverse mechanisms in various resistant models such as multidrug resistance (MDR), radioresistance and nutrient deprivation.
This Special Issue of IJMS, “Nutrition and Cancer”, will focus on the interplay between cell death and cell survival with nutrients in cancer. In this Special Issue, there has been particular interest in antitumor therapeutic strategies based on cell death, cell survival, cell signaling, molecular mechanisms, and chemoresistance.

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.
