Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Melanoma Cellular Plasticity
In recent years, several new therapies have been approved for different cancer entities. Due to these new therapeutic options, physicians are confronted with new challenges, such as monitoring progression and stratifying patients for appropriate treatments.
Novel analytical techniques using body fluids such as blood and tumor tissue have identified numerous possible biomarkers.
In this Special Issue, we will publish reviews and original research that provide new insights into the role of predictive and prognostic tumor biomarkers. Novel insights into tumor biomarkers are particularly welcome.
