Cancer of the female genital organs is specifically known as gynaecological cancer, including primary peritoneal cancer, tubo-ovarian cancer, uterine and cervical cancer, vaginal cancer, and vulvar cancer. Although surgery is the main treatment for gynaecological cancer patients, except in cases of late-stage cervix, vulvar, and vagina cancers, some might need further treatment (adjuvant therapy and/or maintenance therapy). In addition, for those patients with far-advanced or recurrent diseases, the outcome after treatment is often disappointing. Recently, with advances in modern technology, the use of next-generation whole genomic sequences and some small molecules and antibodies has become much plausible in the treatment of these patients. Many clinical trials, including various kinds of targeted therapy and immunotherapy, are ongoing. I believe that this new approach may provide a better chance of controlling these lethal diseases. Eventually, patients with different categories of the same disease may benefit from this individualized therapy (precise medicine). This Special Issue welcomes articles on these and other themes focusing on the treatment of various kinds of gynaecological cancers.
