Special Issue in Cancers: Novel Targets and Approaches in Cancer Therapy
Targeted therapy is one of the major cancer treatment methods available today. Identification of tumor-specific drug targets allows precise targeting of cancer cells while minimizing damage to healthy tissues. Comprehensive genomic characterization of tumor types has helped to advance the development of novel therapies for precision oncology. However, identification of novel druggable targets, relevant mechanisms, and effective combination therapies is needed. Development of resistance through intrinsic and acquired genomic alterations and signaling to targeted therapy, resulting in exceptional responses lasting for only a short duration, is still a major issue. Furthermore, the success of novel therapies may be hindered by adverse side effects. The objective of the current Special Issue in Cancers is to publish original research papers and reviews from authors who are interested in addressing these challenges and provide new insights and novel treatment strategies for targeted cancer therapies.

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 papers will be 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 2200 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.
