Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Non-coding RNA is now accepting submissions for a Special Issue on the biology of ncRNAs and on cancer immunotherapy. This Special Issue is guest-edited by Dr. Ugo Testa from the “Istituto Superiore di Sanità” in Rome, Italy, and will include commissioned topical reviews written by leaders in the field. Accepted papers are published online immediately after copy editing. Non-Coding RNA is an Open Access journal, and there are no Article Processing Charges (APCs) for papers submitted in 2016.
The key role of specific miRNAs for the regulation of immune cell development and function has been firmly established and their association with different human neoplastic diseases has also been demonstrated. Changes in the levels of some of these miRNAs determine deregulation in important immune pathways involved in the control of tumor growth and represent important pathogenetic mechanisms of cancer development and/or progression. The understanding of the inhibitory effect exerted by these miRNAs on the anti-tumor immune pathways is important not only at the basic level for a better understanding of tumor pathogenesis, but also at the translational level for the identification of potential targetable pathways for therapeutic purposes.
We will consider Research, Methods, and Review manuscripts of exceptional interest on the following topics;
- Regulation of tumor myeloid-derived suppressor cells by miRNAs
- Regulation of Programmed Cell Death by miRNA
- Immune check inhibitors and miRNAs
- Targeting miRNAs as a therapeutic strategy to modulate anti-tumor immune response
- miRNA immunotherapeutic targets in colorectal cancer and melanoma
- The emerging role of exosomes in the control of immunological responses to tumors
- Enhancing adoptive T-cell anti-cancer immunotherapy with miRNA therapeutics
- miRNAs as modulators of the response to anti-tumor immunotherapy
- Targeting the tumor microenvironment

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. Non-Coding RNA is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
