Cervical cancer is a common malignancy in women and is still a major life-threatening disease. The mechanisms of tumor development include infection with human papillomavirus and progression through distinct stages of dysplasia. Each of these steps is characterized by molecular changes and likely influenced by a balance between predisposing and protective factors as well as virus–host interactions. Furthermore, the genomic background of both the host cell and the virus may shape the risk for and development of cervical cancer. Further understanding of the molecular mechanisms governing cervical cancer development/progression is vital to develop new therapeutic strategies to improve patient treatment and survival.
Considering the importance of the topic, we have decided to launch a second edition. This Special Issue of Cancers therefore invites new research articles and timely reviews on the molecular pathogenesis of cervical cancer.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cancers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
