Osteosarcoma, also known as bone tumor, generally affects children and adolescents. According to the latest cancer statistics, osteosarcoma was ranked as having the lowest five-year relative survival rate among the most common childhood and adolescent cancers in the United Sates. Since modern therapeutic methods have developed rapidly, the outcome for patients with osteosarcoma has improved. Typical treatments for osteosarcoma include surgery and intensive chemotherapy. However, with respect to recurrent and metastatic osteosarcoma, existing treatments, including surgery and chemotherapy, exhibit a limited therapeutic effect. Therefore, it is necessary to develop new therapeutic strategies to treat osteosarcoma.
Pharmaceuticals invites both original research articles and reviews shedding light on recent challenges in developing therapeutic strategies for the treatment of osteosarcoma. Topics of interest include drug development, drug repositioning, selective optimization of the lead compound, and drug combinations. The collection of manuscripts will be published as a Special Issue of the journal.
