Special Issue "Current Use and Perspectives of Molecular Assessment in Breast Cancer"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 April 2022.
Interests: breast neoplasms; mammary cancer; breast cancer molecular assessement; breast cancer molecular diagnostics
In the last few decades, the role of molecular assessment techniques in breast cancer has deeply changed.
The goals achieved and fields of application have now become virtually unlimited.
Prognosis definition deserves a mention, along with the potential held in informing decision-making processes and treatment administration across different breast cancer settings.
Within such an interesting frame, a specific focus will be on the following subtopics:
- Early disease;
- Locally advanced/metastatic disease;
- Molecular assessment combined with groundbreaking techniques in the discovery/validation phase of breast cancer prognostic/predictive biomarkers;
- The bridging role of molecular assessment between the preclinical and clinical setting.
We welcome submissions of original research papers and reviews on this topic of interest, with a highlight on molecular research and findings.
