Special Issue "Colorectal Cancer: From Molecular Mechanisms to Therapy Strategies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2023) | Viewed by 1255
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world, ranking third with 1.93 million new cases in 2020. Standard treatment modalities for colorectal cancer include surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Despite the advancement of these treatment modalities, metachronous metastasis is a major mortality cause; the estimation is that 50% of colorectal cancer patients will develop metastasis in their lifetime. Treatment resistance is common among advanced stage colorectal tumors. Thus, novel research in the field of molecular mechanisms for colorectal cancer development, metastasis and treatment resistance is highly warranted. Additionally, the post-treatment complications of colorectal cancer are less commonly documented than other common cancers such as breast cancer. The investigation into post-treatment patient needs and the reviewing of current clinical practices regarding post-treatment care are important areas for improving quality of life among this large population of colorectal cancer patients.
This Special Issue was established to prompt research in these fields. All types of original research, including basic studies, translational studies and clinical studies, are welcomed. Reviews on the important issues will also be appreciated.

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. Gastroenterology Insights is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1600 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.
