Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Cervical cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women.

Multidisciplinary treatments such as surgery (open or minimally invasive surgery), radiotherapy, molecular-targeted drugs, and immune checkpoint inhibitors are in clinical use and at various stages of preclinical and clinical development.

MIS, in particular, is the preferred approach; however, recent data on cervical cancer surgery (LACC trial) require a thorough reassessment. 

Papers focusing on histopathology examination techniques, validation of diagnostic tools, the development of innovative materials and therapies, gene therapy, and descriptions of new surgical approaches are also welcome.

Dr. Eiji Kondo
Guest Editor
