Special Issue "Cutaneous Complications of Targeted Cancer Therapy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 July 2021.
Interests: cutaneous oncology; immunodermatology
Research in cancer development has led to the rapid emergence of numerous targeted anticancer therapies in the last decade. Targeted therapies, unlike standard chemotherapy agents that lead to systemic toxicities, are frequently associated with cutaneous adverse events, which may be responsible for dose reduction or therapy discontinuation. Given the rapid development of targeted anticancer treatments, dermatologists will be essential for the recognition of these cutaneous complications, particularly as the presence of dermatologic toxicities has been shown to have a positive correlation with response to therapy. Skin adverse events significantly influence the quality of life of patients under treatment with targeted drugs.
Authors are invited to submit research papers, reviews, clinical studies, and case reports concerning this issue.
