Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the last decades, the armamentarium of systemic therapies against cancer has expanded to include immunotherapy and targeted therapies in addition to the traditional cytotoxic chemotherapies and endocrine therapies. These novel therapies have improved survival outcomes for selected patients and questioned whether surrogates of progression-free survival or response rates for overall survival are appropriate for patients treated with modalities.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:

  • Immunotherapy past, present and future: how it changed patient's survival and raise the need for new oncology endpoints.
  • The emergence of novel immunotherapies to overcome resistance and sensitize cold tumor to improve outcomes
  • Next generation sequencing and personalized medicine: How it transformed new drugs development and clinical trial research
  • Surrogate endpoints in the era of targeted therapy and immunotherapy
  • Epidemiologic perspective on the emergence of novel systemic therapies including impact on  clinical outcomes,  social cost and impacts on disparities within developed and across developing countries..

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
