Special Issue "Oncogenes in Cancer"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2021) | Viewed by 7555
The first oncogenes were discovered more than three decades ago. Since then, a remarkable development has been achieved by the scientific community in order to unravel the biological impact of those oncogenes in the development and progression of different neoplasms and their potential clinical applicability in designing targeted therapies. All this knowledge has made it possible to think of a personalized treatment of cancer.
In this Special Issue entitled “Oncogenes in Cancer”, we approach the role of actionable genomic somatic alterations able to driver different solid tumors, their biological context, and the different therapeutic strategies evaluated.
This Special Issue has being conceived as a comprehensive review of the most frequently present oncogenes in major solid malignancies, updating the most relevant advances leading to the development and eventual approval of new targeted therapeutic compounds.
