Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

Developing novel cancer therapeutics is essential for treating cancer, a complex, multi-factorial disease that is dreaded worldwide. Although significant advances have been made in recent years in preventing and treating cancer, the mortality rate is still unacceptably high. Many of the current chemotherapeutics are limited by significant side effects, unpredictable efficacies or acquired resistances. Recent discoveries concerning the pathogenesis and biology of cancer have unraveled new, strategic cellular targets for drug intervention. This has allowed the rational development of novel cancer therapeutics. For this Special Issue, we invite the submission of manuscripts that focus on the design, synthesis, evaluation, and further development of investigational agents (including natural products) as potential cancer chemotherapeutics.
