Advances in mechanism and treatment strategy of cancer

We invite investigators to contribute basic, translational and clinical studies, meta-analysis, as well as review articles that contribute towards understanding signaling mechanisms of tumor progression and metastasis, microenvironment, vasculogenic mimics/angiogenesis, identification of biomarkers for early diagnostics, clinical therapeutic approaches, and current concepts in the prevention and treatment of human cancer.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Autophagy
  • Cancer progression
  • Cancer metastasis
  • Vasculogenic mimics/angiogenesis
  • Cancer microenvironment, such as extracellular matrix and exosome
  • Cancer survival
  • Chemotherapy resistance
  • Genetic polymorphisms
  • Non-coding RNA, such as miRNAs, lncRNAs and circRNAs
  • Radiosensitize
  • Vasculogenic mimicry

Special Issue on: Biosynthesis, metabolism and biological activities of natural products from medicinal and food plants

We invite investigators to submit both original research and review articles that explore all the aspects of bioactive phytochemicals, with emphasis on their functional roles on plant organisms. We are also interested in contributions focusing on biological and pharmacological activities of plant natural products, as well as on their roles in human nutrition as health-promoting agents.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to the following

  • Medicinal and food plants
  • Plant stress physiology
  • Plant secondary metabolites
  • Phytoalexins
  • Chemical ecology
  • Global climate changes
  • Environmental pollution
  • Functional foods
  • Nutraceuticals
  • Botanicals
  • Essential oils
  • Xenobiotic metabolism
  • Oral bioavailability
