About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to generate discussion regarding recent advances in the study of cancer metabolism in colorectal cancer and new imaging technologies that can monitor metabolic status in cancer cell/tissue, and also discuss how these findings can be applied clinically. By providing researchers with these findings, our goal is to help develop novel therapies for colorectal cancer by inhibiting and monitoring cancer metabolism. Furthermore, we aim to establish a novel concept of "theranostics (therapy + diagnostic) techniques that monitor and target cancer metabolism".
All types of articles (review, mini-review, and original research including translational reserach), related to cancer metabolism in colorectal cancer and metabolic imaging colorectal cancer are welcome to be submitted to this Research Topic.
Please note: manuscripts consisting solely of bioinformatics or computational analysis of public genomic or transcriptomic databases which are not accompanied by validation (independent cohort or biological validation in vitro or in vivo) are out of scope for this section and will not be accepted as part of this Research Topic.
Keywords: Cancer metabolism, Glycolysis Oxidative, Phosphorylation, Small molecules, Imaging technology, 13C-MRI, clinical application
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
