Gynecological tumors are solid tumors happened in the reproductive system of women, including ovarian, cervical cancer, endometrial cancer and others. These cancers seriously affect the health of women worldwide, and contributing considerably to the global cancer burden. Many conventional anticancer drugs have been used for gynaecological tumors. For example, cisplatin, paclitaxel, methotrexate, vinorelbine and gemcitabine are often used for the treatment of gynaecological tumors. However, they may lack therapeutic effects or cause cytotoxic effects. In addition, there are many reports of gynaecological cancer progression and recurrence due to cancer cells that resist to treatments.
Significant progress has been made in the treatment of gynecological tumors in recent years. Molecular targeted therapies have emerged as clinically useful drugs for the cure of gynaecological tumors. Molecular mechanisms of carcinogenesis and recurrence of gynecological cancers are gaining better understanding due to recent advances in molecular biology and genomic research. However, there remains a need to uncover biomarkers for prognosis and predictive diagnosis, progression and recurrence of gynecological tumors, and challenges for new therapeutics remain.
In this topic, we welcome articles for the molecular and cellular biology, biomarkers, diagnostics, and the treatment of gynaecological tumors including conventional chemotherapy, small molecular targeted drugs and monoclonal antibodies for targeted therapy. In addition, new technologies such as liquid biopsy, mRNA vaccines and gemonic editing therapy focused on gynecological tumors are also welcome.
