It is a pleasure to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue of Antioxidants by submitting original research papers or review articles focusing on “Free Radical Research in Cancer”.
Cancer is a great challenge to efficient therapy due to biological diversity. Disturbed oxidative homeostasis in cancer cells certainly contributes to differential therapy response. One of the hallmarks of cancer cells is adaptation, which includes fine tuning of the cellular metabolic and signalling pathways, as well as transcription profiles. One of the factors causing rapid adaptation are changes in oxygen levels due to hypoxia/reoxygenation during growth changing antioxidative patterns as a consequence. Finally, these events sum up and create challenges for efficient cancer therapy.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present recent findings and to describe the state-of-the-art on the mechanisms by which free radicals contribute to cancer development and change response to therapy.
We look forward to receiving many contributions and stimulating a productive discussion on this exciting thematic of role of free radicals in cancer development, progression and treatment.
