Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

An intense rhythm of life, stress or other unfavorable situations can lead to the disruption of homeostasis in the human body. In addition, the prolonged lifespan, compared to previous centuries, increased the incidence of chronic non-communicable diseases. Under these circumstances, neoplastic transformation remains one of the biggest challenges of this century. Preventing carcinogenesis or finding therapeutic cures represents a responsibility for all of us working in the biomedical fields. This disease often develops due to high heterogeneity and the ability of the most resistant clones to survive. Moreover, neoplastic transformation can spread in the entire body and behave as a systemic disease. Stopping the proliferating signals and the ability of the transformed cells to resist death, invade, metastasize or induce angiogenesis represent the potential targets in cancer management. Somewhere in this complex tapestry, natural products or dietary compounds can bring their benefit in releasing from the burden of this disease.

The Special Issue welcomes all types of studies dedicated to investigating the molecular mechanisms of the neoplastic transformation and its relationship with dietary compounds.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
