In recent years, researchers have been searching for an innovative paradigm with which to find people with cancer and get the right treatment. The potential solution they have been searching for is called a liquid biopsy or biofluid biopsy, and it is already within reach. Typical biofluids of this solution are blood andurine for the study of cancer. The core research goal of liquid biopsy is to find clinically useful biomarkers in biofluids and to detect low concentrations of biomarkers.
This Special Issue of Journal Clinical Medicine tries to collect recent studies in liquid biopsy ranging from finding biomarkers to the molecular diagnosis of cancer, and thus brings together the most up-to-date technologies and advances in this expanding and evolving field. Our scope in this Issue includes exosomes; circulating nucleic acids; circulating tumor cells; and their emerging technologies for isolation, detection, and various applications.
On behalf of Journal of Clinical Medicine, you are cordially invited to contribute an article to the Special Issue “Circulating Biomakers and Liquid Biopsy for Cancer". Research articles, reviews, and mini reviews are welcome.

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 papers will be 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. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
