Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Tumors are the second-largest cause of mortality in the world. The early detection and diagnosis of a tumor can effectively reduce its occurrence and fatality rate. Cancer biomarkers are molecules that are present in human blood, urine, or saliva as well as in other bodily fluids, tissues, and cells that are used to identify various tumors and to monitor tumor progression. The discovery of tumor biomarkers, namely nucleic acids, proteins, small-molecule metabolites, and microorganisms, can be applied to the detection, diagnosis, and prognosis of tumors because of their high sensitivity and specificity and non-invasive nature. Furthermore, the development of novel, simple, highly sensitive, and specific biomarker detection techniques is also significant for the use of biomarkers in tumor detection. Therefore, this new Special Issue focuses on the publication of scientific papers about tumor-related biomarkers as well as novel analytical methods and technologies for cancer detection.
We kindly invite the submission of original research and review articles about novel tumor biomarkers and biosensor technologies for tumor detection, diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
