Special Issue "Marine Drugs as Antitumour Agents 2017"
A special issue of Marine Drugs (ISSN 1660-3397).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2017).

Interests: natural product antitumor agent pharmacology; anti-metastatic drug discovery; tumor cell metabolism regulators; bioactive cyanobacteria metabolites
Natural products continue to play a major role in anticancer medicine, and marine metabolites have emerged as important antitumor drugs. New insights into the mechanisms responsible for tumor etiology are revolutionizing our approach(es) to cancer therapy. Tumor-specific treatments show promise to decrease our reliance on non-specific cytotoxic agents.
This Special Issue integrates modern methods in drug screening with new molecular and cell-based antitumor targets to identify structurally and/or mechanistically novel marine natural products with potential anticancer activity.
