Breast cancer has become the most diagnosed cancer worldwide with about 685,000 deaths recorded in 2020. Metastases are responsible for approximately 90% of breast cancer-related deaths and, despite treatment advances, they remain largely incurable. Breast cancer preferentially metastasizes to bones, lungs, liver, and brain. However, molecular features dictating site-specific metastasis and differential responses to therapy are still poorly understood. Therefore, a better comprehension of how metastatic breast cancer cells interact with their microenvironment is essential for the design of tailored treatments.
We are pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue entitled “Breast Cancer Metastasis: Novel Insights into Molecular Mechanisms and Treatments” that aims to provide the latest key findings in the field of basic and translational research on metastatic breast cancer. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating organ-specific metastasis and tumor dormancy, biomarker discovery, and advancements in therapeutic approaches for the various breast cancer subtypes, including small-molecule inhibitors and immunotherapy.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr. Delphine Denoyer
Manuscript Submission Information
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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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 semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
