About This Topic

Molecular Cancer Therapeutics is a special issue focused on articles related to the molecular basis of cancer, discovery and preclinical development of novel therapeutic agents for cancer and preclinical studies of approved therapeutics. Those includes identification of new genes that are specifically expressed in cancer, targeted therapy of cancer, the immunotherapy, and the study of small molecule and protein drugs. In this special issue of OBM Genetics, we aim to the introduction of the latest research progress and novel models and technologies in molecular cancer therapeutics. There is no limitation on the article types, original research papers, reviews, editorial, short communications, case reports and perspectives are welcome for submission. We sincerely welcome authors in this field to contribute their excellent works to this exciting forum.
