Interests: breast surgery; cancer immunology
Current topics in breast cancer include the novel imaging in cancer, the minimal invasive operation, and tailoring therapeutic approach on the basis of cancer biology. Regarding the imaging, possible topics of interest may include the functional imaging on PET, molecular imaging on targeting molecules. Regarding surgery, possible topics of interest may include sentinel lymph node biopsy, the minimal surgery after chemotherapy and/or endocrine therapy, the plastic surgery. Regarding of cancer biology, possible topics of interest may include cancer stem cell, EMT, circulating tumor cell, and disseminated tumor cell. In clinical practice, we may interest in biomarkers predicting prognosis and therapeutic effect, chemotherapy and endocrine therapy on the basis of the intrinstic subtype, and immunotherapy (i.e. cancer vaccine, transferring CTL).

All manuscripts should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy to the Guest Editor. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cancers is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
For the first two issues, to be published in 2009 and 2010, the Article Processing Charges (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
