Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Characterized by its aggressive nature, high morbidity and mortality rates, esophageal cancer represents a global health burden. Aiming to enhance early detection, refine diagnostic approaches, and develop more effective treatment strategies, extensive research efforts have been dedicated to unraveling the intricate complexities of this disease.

As a result, personalized treatment with targeted therapies, immunotherapies, and combination treatment regimens have emerged as promising avenues for combating esophageal cancer while minimizing adverse effects.

While surgical intervention remains a mainstay in the management of esophageal cancer, researchers have been actively exploring minimally invasive and organ-preserving approaches to reduce invasiveness, encourage faster recovery, and improve quality of life for patients.

The challenges posed by advanced and metastatic esophageal cancer necessitate a concerted effort to develop more effective systemic therapies.

Addressing the holistic needs of patients with cancer is a matter of paramount importance. The management of treatment-related side-effects, nutritional support, psychosocial care, and survivorship issues are essential components of comprehensive patient care.

Research submitted to this Issue should aim to enhance patient well-being, optimize treatment adherence, and foster improved quality of life throughout the cancer journey.

We extend our deepest gratitude to the authors for their exceptional contributions and hope that this Special Issue will serve as a catalyst for further progress in the treatment of esophageal cancer.
