Cancer Biology and Anticancer Therapeutics

A section of Medicines (ISSN 2305-6320).

Section Information

This section facilitates the translation of basic cancer biology into cancer therapy, publishing original research articles and reviews covering all the aspects of cancer characteristics in terms of genetic/epigenetic alterations and anti-cancer therapeutics. Papers aim to better understand the vulnerabilities of cancer cells toward the development of innovative anti-cancer drugs and therapeutics. Topics include but are not limited to in vitro, in vivo, and systems biological cancer characteristics, including the Warburg effect, tumor inflammatory microenvironment and cancer stem cells, therapeutic response and resistance, and targeted chemo- and immuno-therapies. Especially, the discovery of novel anti-cancer agents ranging from natural and synthetic compounds to those designed in silico for anti-cancer therapeutics are fundamentally important. Furthermore, the identification and validation of novel therapeutic targets and the evaluation of novel diagnosis markers are included, working towards advancements in the prevention and effective treatment of cancer.
