Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Recent years have witnessed unprecedented progresses and innovations in personalized therapy in a move towards tailored interventions according to individual patients’ specific disease.
Following the WHO 2016 classification several new and emerging/provisional renal entities have been described. Immunotherapy has entered current practice in the metastatic setting, and has recently also seen use in the adjuvant setting for high-risk disease, but predictive markers are still lacking.
Antibody–drug conjugates are promising tools in bladder cancer, and are being tested in both neoadjuvant and advanced settings, with potential clinical value also in non-muscle invasive disease. Treatment selection and sequencing are still matters of debate, along with cost-efficiency issues.
In prostate cancer, cutting-edge methods such as artificial intelligence and computational pathology have demonstrated potential improvements in grading reproducibility and pattern quantification. Radiomics is a promising tool to detect and categorize prostate lesions by the quantitative extraction and analysis of data from medical images, being able to predict Gleason score and biochemical recurrence. PSMA-targeted imaging agents and different PSMA target therapies have been developed in parallel with molecular targeted drugs such PARP inhibitors and second-generation antiandrogens.
This Special Issue will provide a forum for the discussion of the most recent advanced topics in uro-oncology, with a special focus on biomarker investigation, new technological applications and therapeutic developments.
