Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Journal of Clinical Medicine will be publishing a Special Issue on precision medicine in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:

  • Targeted and combination therapies;
  • Predictive biomarkers;
  • Genomic profiling;
  • Checkpoint inhibitors and PD-L1 expression;
  • CAR-T cell therapy;
  • Circulating tumor DNA or cell-free DNA;
  • Chemoimmunotherapy;
  • Next-generation sequencing of tumors.

The Special Issue welcomes original research articles, short research reports and review articles. A unique aspect of the journal is that it welcomes studies with negative results that are instructive in the progress of a particular area of research.
