About this Research Topic
Even though there are many tumor markers, the number of key markers that can affect the tumor process and that can be applied in the clinic is limited. This topic aims to identify molecules that have a significant impact on the gastrointestinal tumor process and that may help in the development of new therapeutic strategies.
The scope of the Research Topic includes but is not limited to:
• Gastrointestinal tumors
• Microenvironmental factors and molecular mechanisms of tumor progression
• Cytokines and metastatic properties of carcinoma cells
• Role of carcinoma stem cells in tumor formation
• Immune system and tumor development
• Molecular mechanisms regulating therapy response of tumor lesions
• Novel therapeutic approaches to prevent and/or combat IBD and its associated tumor
• Exosomes in the regulation of diverse processes of IBD and its associated tumor
• Immunotherapy in different courses of tumor patients
• Biomarkers as therapeutic targets in gastrointestinal tumor processes
Please note that clinical studies and manuscripts describing purely bioinformatic analyses of existing databases without significant experimental validation will not be accepted to this collection, as they are outside the scope of the Preclinical Cell and Gene Therapy section, of which this Research Topic is a part.
