Special Issue "Targeting Angiogenesis and the Immune System in Cancer: Current Challenges"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 November 2019
It is my pleasure to invite you to contribute to the upcoming Special Issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine devoted to “Targeting Angiogenesis and the Immune System in Cancer: Current Challenges”. The intent of this issue is to provide up-to-date knowledge on the crucial mechanisms promoting angiogenesis and mediating immunosuppression during cancer development and progression. As is now well known, tumors grow and evolve through a constant crosstalk with the surrounding microenvironment, and emerging evidence indicates that angiogenesis and immunosuppression frequently occur simultaneously in response to this crosstalk. Accordingly, strategies combining anti-angiogenic therapy and immunotherapy seem to have the potential to tip the balance of the tumor microenvironment and improve treatment response.
Original research papers describing complete investigations, brief communications reporting timely and significant results, and review articles highlighting recent findings are welcome. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed according to standard journal procedures and policies.
I do hope that you will be able to accept this invitation and contribute to the success of this Special Issue.
Thank you for considering this invitation.
Prof. Dr. Vito Racanelli
