Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. While conventional cytotoxic agents help with minimising tumour growth, their application is limited by a toxic adverse effect profile, tumour resistance to the treatment, and reduced patient compliance. The field of anticancer drug development is growing rapidly and day by day newer treatments enter clinical phases, but very few make out their way to final approval and market. The aim of this special issue is to emphasise the importance of novelty and precision in modern anticancer drug development and pave the way for future clinically applicable anticancer drugs.

We encourage interested investigators to submit original research, reviews, case reports and clinical studies to this special issue. We welcome submission on the following areas, however, any other relevant subjects could be considered for possible publication.

· Anticancer drug discovery and development,

· Pharmacological, toxicological, and immunological aspects of natural and chemically synthetised anticancer drugs and nanomedicines,

· Novel drug delivery methods to tumours.

Dr. Sarah Shigdar and Dr. Maryam Nakhjavani
