Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Breast cancer is the most common type of malignancy detected in women, with poor prognosis in higher pathologic grades. Breast tumor metastasis refers to the spread of cancer cells from the primary tumor in the breast to other parts of the body. Metastasis is a complex process and a significant factor in the progression and severity of breast cancer. Distant organs such as the lungs, brain, and bone are observed to be the most frequent metastatic sites. The immune microenvironment plays a significant role in breast cancer metastasis. The immune microenvironment refers to the various immune cells, signaling molecules, and the overall immune response within the tumor and its surrounding tissue. Understanding how the immune system interacts with cancer cells can provide insights into the progression and spread of breast cancer.

This Special Issue will feature original research and review articles focused on, but not be limited to, studies deciphering the role of confounding factors including immune cells in the metastasis of breast cancer to distant organs. The goal is to provide updated information on ongoing research in the complex and dynamic interaction between cancer cells and cells of the immune system and its role in the development of novel therapeutic approaches.

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. Medical Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
