Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Prostate cancer is a multifaceted and biologically highly heterogeneous disease, with widely varying levels of mortality and morbidity. Many patients present with an indolent disease with few symptoms, while others develop a highly aggressive disease that progresses to metastatic carcinoma that is refractory to both hormone therapy and chemotherapy.

This disease is the most common cancer in men and the second leading cause of cancer deaths. Despite the great progress made in the field of prostate cancer research and treatment, further integrated analyses are still required to better understand the biology of prostate cancer and to identify new biomarkers in order to determine the diagnosis, prognosis and targeted therapeutic options for patients.

This Special Issue invites manuscripts analysing the genome, epigenome and transcriptome that are associated with the initiation and progression of prostate cancer from indolent to malignant status, as well as therapeutic responses. In addition, we are interested in publishing analyses of novel target therapies.

Dr. Ida Silvestri
Guest Editor

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
