Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cancer is a serious problem that presents a huge threat to human health. During the last few years, there has been continued progress in anticancer drug development.

New agents ranging from small molecules to engineered antibodies and immune modulators have been approved for cancer treatment. Targeting drugs specifically to cancer cells can minimize the toxic effects on normal, healthy cells.

This Special Issue on “The Anticancer Drugs” aims to be an open forum where researchers may share their experiences and findings in this promising field. It is focused on the comprehensive and critical examination of current and emerging research on the design and development of advanced anticancer and their application to experimental and clinical therapeutics.

Contributions to this issue, in the form of both original research and review articles, may cover all aspects of new discovery and development of new therapeutic agents for cancer, using the newest techniques of biotechnology, pharmacology, and genetic engineering.
