Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that we will call for contributions for publication in JPM’s Special Issue, titled Gastrointestinal Cancers: New Advances and Challenges. Today, various guidelines for the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers based on large-scale clinical studies are being developed around the world, and many patients can benefit from standardized treatment. On the other hand, excessive indications of standardized treatment may impede optimal advanced medical care for individual patients. Gastrointestinal oncology is progressing day by day, and new disease concepts, new pathogenic mechanisms, and new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities are being developed one after another. This Special Issue seeks all types of contributions on diagnostic problems and solutions, the efficacy and limitations of standardized treatments, approaches to individualized treatments, novel and challenging diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, and their clinical experiences. It is important to share your knowledge and experience with our readers, and we therefore consider papers on negative data and unsuccessful cases, among other things.

Dr. Yasuo Imai
Guest Editor
