Our understanding of the pathogenesis of solid tumors at the molecular level is expanding day by day. Due to unprecedented technological developments, coupled with novel holistic approaches in translational research, a multitude of biomarkers at genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and immunologic levels have been discovered. These biomarkers are strongly impacting treatment decision making in patients with solid tumors.
This Special Issue in Genes on “Molecular Biomarkers in Solid Tumors” will provide a monographic portrait of the current state of knowledge of biomarkers for the clinical management of cancer patients. We especially welcome review articles (either systematic or discursive), original translational research studies, and short communications of preliminary, but significant, experimental results.
