Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Multi-disciplinary approaches are required to treat primary nervous system tumors, metastatic tumors invading the nervous system, and the remote effects of systemic cancer, i.e., neurological paraneoplastic syndromes and neurological complications of anti-cancer therapies. Neuro-oncology originally focused on the abovementioned problems in basic sciences, experimental studies, and clinical trials. Many specialists, including neurosurgeons, neurologists, oncologists, chemotherapists, radiotherapists, neuropathologists, neuroradiologists, and immunologists, are involved in research related to neuro-oncology. Glioblastoma multiforme, the most common and aggressive primary brain tumor, remains a challenge due to the complexity of its nature and the invasion of the whole brain. Mechanisms of brain metastases, the role the blood–brain barrier, and chemo- and/or radiotherapy-induced complications in the nervous system are major medical unknowns. Accordingly, we are announcing a Special Issue called “Updates in Neuro-Oncology”. This Special Issue invites original research and systematic reviews regarding neuro-oncology.
