Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent advancements in molecular sciences enabled the development of new potent therapies, as well as new comprehensive diagnostic means for cancer patients, which translate to better prognosis. From targeted therapies and immunotherapy to new horizons such as gene profiling, gene editing and the potential applicability of non-coding RNAs as therapeutic, diagnostic and prognostic tools, the constant discovery of molecular targets and mechanisms help to shape the future of oncology. As we begin to grasp the importance of genomic medicine in understanding the pathogenesis and progression of cancer, new discoveries within this field have already been made. The advancements made in genomics proved that there is a special need to offer in-depth diagnosis for cancer patients, with the purpose of providing a customized and an on-point treatment plan, thus increasing survival. This Special Issue is dedicated to all researchers and physicians who work in the field of cancer and endeavor to ultimately provide patients with faster, more accurate diagnosis and more effective treatment, as well as better care.

This Special Issue is supervised by Prof. Dr. Ioana Berindan-Neagoe (Iuliu Hatieganu University of Medicine and Pharmacy) and assisted by our Topical Advisory Panel Member Dr. Alexandru Tirpe (Institute of Oncology and Iuliu Hatieganu University of Medicine and Pharmacy).

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.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.

Glioblastoma remains one of the most aggressive cancers of the brain, warranting new methods for early diagnosis and more efficient treatment options. Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are rather new entities with increased stability compared to their linear counterparts that interact with proteins and act as microRNA sponges, among other functions. Herein, we provide a critical overview of the recently described glioblastoma-related circRNAs in the literature, focusing on their roles on glioblastoma cancer cell proliferation, survival, migration, invasion and metastasis, metabolic reprogramming, and therapeutic resistance. The main roles of circRNAs in regulating cancer processes are due to their regulatory roles in essential oncogenic pathways, including MAPK, PI3K/AKT/mTOR, and Wnt, which are influenced by various circRNAs. The present work pictures the wide implication of circRNAs in glioblastoma, thus highlighting their potential as future biomarkers and therapeutic targets/agents. Full article
