Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Cancer metastasis is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths. In spite of progress in the survival of cancer patients, there is an urgent need to understand the mechanisms of cancer progression for the development of novel preventive and therapeutic approaches for controlling its spread.
This Special Issue is focused on the collection of papers on “Attacking cancer progression and metastasis”. It provides an effective way to communicate current knowledge about the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in cancer progression and metastasis and/or to suggest new targets for possible future therapeutic interventions. It is aimed at giving ample scope for new ideas about how to block or weaken processes of cancer’s progression to its final stage.
In the current series, we invite papers from basic research, translational research, and clinical studies on all aspects of possible targetable mechanisms leading to effective interventions in the future.

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).
