Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women. The role of novel biomarkers at the genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and immunologic levels in treatment decision making for breast cancer is increasing day by day. A deeper investigation of breast cancer-associated novel biomarkers could enhance treatment effectiveness and patient survival.

This Special Issue of Cells, entitled “Biomarkers for Therapeutic Advances in Breast Cancer”, aims to solicit contributions highlighting exciting new findings in the area of biomarkers and therapeutic strategies, together with advanced experimental approaches, for the management of breast cancer.

Authors are welcome to submit comprehensive review articles, original research studies, and communications of preliminary, but significant, experimental results. Each submitted manuscript will undergo a formal peer review process. Submitted manuscripts must not have been published previously, nor can they be under consideration for publication in other journals.
