Loss of normal cell cycle control is a hallmark of cancer, resulting in targeting of cell cycle regulators for cancer therapy. In general, strategies used to exploit the deregulated cancer cell cycle by directly targeting cell cycle regulators do not provide cancer specificity. This issue of Cancers invites contributions of original research reports, clinical studies, and review articles that focus on cancer specific modifications that would allow indirect targeting of cell cycle deregulation. Potential topics include modifications of the microenvironment, inflammatory signaling, stress response, and post-transcriptional events that result in cell cycle deregulation.

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. 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.
