Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is the second most common primary liver cancer, and its incidence is increasing, especially for intrahepatic CCA. The systemic treatment landscape for patients with advanced disease is rapidly evolving, and now includes not only chemotherapy but also immunotherapy and targeted agents. Therefore, molecular testing and characterization are critical to identifying genetic alterations, which can be targeted by novel agents. Biomarkers play a crucial role in selecting different patient subgroups, choosing treatments, identifying mechanisms of resistance, and ultimately improving patient outcomes.
This Special Issue aims to summarize the current status, recent developments, and future perspectives in the field of biomarkers for CCA. Both original manuscripts and reviews will be considered for inclusion in the Special Issue.
