About This Special Issue
Cancer Research explores the current trends and innovative technologies under investigation for use in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. This includes but is not limited to: a detailed review of the current methods used in detecting and treating the different types of cancer, exploration of ground-breaking techniques and algorithms in medical imaging systems such as X-ray, computed tomography, ultrasound optical imaging, and magnetic resonance imaging systems for cancer detection, novel approaches leading to improvement in cancer diagnosis, inventive surgical tools and techniques in the treatment of cancer, and novel systems for cancer treatment and diagnosis. Significant improvements to existing tools and systems will also be addressed.

The aim of this special issue is to highlight novel methods, techniques, tools and systems that are being tested to improve the detection and treatment of the different types of cancer, such as breast cancer, skin cancer, bladder cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and lung cancer.

    Abstract: The treatment of breast cancer, the most common malignancy among women worldwide, remains puzzling partly due to the resistance to therapeutics, which associates with the heterogeneity of case clinical presentations, and limits in the current understanding of the pathogenesis of solid cancers. Notably, it remains unclear: (i) whether breast cancer ... Show More

    Abstract: Reducing cancer morbidity and mortality requires several synergic approaches target on tumoural cells and their environment. Angiogenesis is the development of new blood vessels from the pre-existing vasculature. This process is normally observed only transiently during embryogenesis, and in adulthood, during wound healing and uterus function. Howe... Show More
