Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
As we know, oxidation and reduction of molecules are commonly associated with various processes of physiology and pathology. In particular, the oxidative stress and the corresponding activation of anti-oxidative systems have been regarded as essential and necessary in gene mutation, malignant transformation, tumor formation and development, cell death, and inflammation-type response in cancer treatment. Therefore, understanding the important role of redox in the occurrence and treatment of cancer from different aspects will provide considerable insights into the prevention of cancer, optimization of treatments, improvement of prognosis, and relief of side effects.
In this Special Issue, we look forward to collecting research papers which explore the role of redox in different research fields of tumorigenesis and oncotherapy, including chemical, physical, and biological aspects, and in particular non-conventional aspects. We also welcome contributions of systemic reviews which survey and summarize new advances in these fields.
