Special Issue "Biomarkers in Colorectal Cancer"
A special issue of Journal of Personalized Medicine (ISSN 2075-4426).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018)
Colorectal cancer is the third cancer, both in terms of incidence and mortality in Western countries. Currently, molecular biomarkers play an important role in the detection and treatment of colorectal cancer patients. Molecular biomarkers are useful in recognizing colorectal cancer susceptibility or in the screening and diagnosis of early stages of the disease. The presence or absence of specific prognostic and predictive tumour biomarkers lead to a more rational selection of pharmacological treatments for colorectal cancer with consequent improvements in outcome. Molecular biomarkers predictive of drug toxicity are also available and help clinicians in the choice of the safest drug treatment for each patient. In this Special Issue, the current knowledge, as well as the future perspectives on the role of tumour biomarkers in colorectal cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up, will be discussed.
