Special Issue Information
Cancer and infectious diseases continue to be a major health challenge worldwide. Recent research is focused on developing new therapies and approaches to prevent, detect, and treat these diseases. Nanotechnology has the potential to innovate cancer and infectious disease treatment due to its capacity for targeted drug delivery and imaging. Researchers are developing nanoscale devices that can deliver drugs directly to cancer cells or infected cells, increasing treatment effectiveness while minimizing side effects. Similarly, Immunotherapy is a promising approach to treat cancer. It harnesses body's immune system to fight cancer cells. There are several types of immunotherapies, including immune checkpoint inhibitors, adoptive cell transfer, and cancer vaccines. Researchers are continuing to develop new immunotherapy strategies that are more effective and have fewer side effects.
This Special Issue aims to describe the state-of-the-art treatment as well as the remaining clinical and molecular obstacles. Furthermore, it seeks to identify potential avenues of future treatment and means to improve outcomes for patients with cancer and infectious diseases.
Our overall goal is to collect cutting-edge preclinical research and review to achieve the best possible outcomes for in field researchers and interested readers. This Special Issue shall encompass articles on new therapies to diagnose and treat tumor and other infectious diseases, with a special emphasize on nanotechnologies and immunotherapy approaches.
