Special Issue "Current Advances in Clinical Genomics and Treatment of Urothelial Carcinoma"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 April 2022.
Immense progress in large-scale genomics projects is transforming the therapeutic landscape of various cancers. Urothelial carcinoma is a common, potentially lethal malignancy, particularly in the advanced stage. Immune checkpoint inhibitors, antibody drug conjugates, and novel targeted agents have become part of the treatment armamentarium for urothelial carcinoma. An important challenge for clinicians is how to best utilize genomic approaches to predict treatment responses and identify patients who can derive a preferential benefit from these therapeutic options. This Special Issue aims at providing an update on recent advances in the molecular landscape of UC and how genomic alterations in key signaling pathways might serve in biomarker development, drug development, and prediction of patient outcomes.

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. Current Oncology 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 1600 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.
