Special Issue "Cancer Metabolomics 2019"
A special issue of Metabolites (ISSN 2218-1989).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2019
We welcome the submission of original research articles or review papers as contributions to this Special Issue of Metabolites dedicated to cancer metabolomics. The aim for this Issue is to highlight innovative metabolomic approaches, as well as novel achievements of metabolomic investigations in oncology that either provide mechanistic insights into model systems or pertain to translational and clinical studies. Many aspects of metabolomics research, notably in the field of cancerology, contribute to defining disease trajectories that sustain the promotion of P4 medicine—predictive, preventive, personalized, and participatory—to transform healthcare. We therefore encourage contributions that include cross-disciplinary research, involve large-scale data collection and analysis, or involve multi-omics studies for integrative medicine. Noting that over 50% of all cancers develop in a background of pre-existing infectious, immuno-inflammatory or metabolic chronic disease, original work that aims to understand the underlying metabolic mechanisms linking chronic diseases with cancer will be a highly relevant contribution to this Special Issue. Investigations of metabolic markers of risk, early markers of disease, and prognostic markers of the evolution of responses to cancer treatment are equally welcome.
We hope with this Special Issue to provide our readers with a timely overview of metabolomics contemporary research and perspectives in the broad area of cancerology.

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. Metabolites 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 1000 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.
