Publication of the 3rd issue in 2020


As a highlighted public health event, coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic affects people’s routine life globally this year. For cancer patients with COVID-19, it seems very important to study their risks, clinical features, therapeutics, medical cares, and so on. Prof. Xiaoping Miao and Xiaojiang Cui contribute an editorial and a review on this topic respectively. We believe these two papers could be as the important references for both clinicians and researchers worldwide.


In this issue, several papers on basic researches focus the roles of some molecules in the tumorigenesis and cancer development, such as CMTM family proteins, Anoctamin 7 (ANO7), PRAS40, SHP2. What’s more, reviews and original researches on clinical oncology could be attractive as well to readers. The contents refer to management strategy for papillary thyroid microcarcinoma, immune checkpoint inhibitor pneumonitis in non-small cell lung cancer patients, patients treated with SVILE vs. P-GemOx for extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type, and other aspects.


We hope this issue will greatly benefit your research and clinical practice. Welcome to submit your work to Cancer Biology & Medicine.
