With the prolongation in life expectancy, a continuously ageing population is more prone to developing chronic diseases. The prevalence of cardiovascular and oncologic disorders is also increasing, and there is an unmet need for life-saving treatments. This Special Issue is calling for original articles and state-of-the-art reviews that address the mechanisms and the clinical scenarios linking cancer, cardiovascular disorders and conventional and novel oncological therapies, in order to update the readers of IJMS with the major advancements in this field. Basic and clinical research are upfront in dissecting the complex, bidirectional interactions between cancer and cardiovascular disorders that frequently lead to an increased risk of cardiotoxicity from antineoplastic drugs, and in the quest for novel therapeutic strategies to fight these problems.
