Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue on “Combination therapy approaches for cancer treatment”. The treatment of human malignancies invites ongoing challenges, including the development of tumor resistance mechanisms to conventional therapeutic agents. Thus, combination therapy approaches are being explored to target tumor resistance mechanisms and counter-regulatory pathways involved in impeding the efficacy of cancer therapies to improve the overall responses of therapeutic agents, including survival benefits.

This Special Issue aims to publish original research articles or reviews on combination therapy approaches for cancer treatment, which fits with the journal’s scope regarding drug targeting and interdisciplinary research, involving, but not limited to, biomedical sciences and cell biology.

In this Special Issue, research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: a combination of chemotherapeutic agents, repurposed drugs, dietary phytochemicals, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy approaches on any cancer models.

We look forward to receiving your contributions

Dr. Ravi P. Sahu
Dr. Anita Thyagarajan
