β-Catenin gene promoter hypermethylation by reactive oxygen species correlates with the migratory and invasive potentials of colon cancer cells

Colon cancer is one of the commonest cancers, and more than half of those affected succumb to cancer-related events, mainly metastasis [ 1 ], which is caused by cells detaching from primary tumors and then migrating to surrounding tissues and/or …

Stromal collagen type VI associates with features of malignancy and predicts poor prognosis in salivary gland cancer

Salivary gland carcinomas (SGC) are rare malignancies of the head and neck, most of which arise in the parotid gland. According to the WHO 2005 classification, it comprises 24 histological subtypes [ 1 ]. Published 5-year overall survival rates …

Mesenchymal marker and LGR5 expression levels in circulating tumor cells correlate with colorectal cancer prognosis

Each year, about 1.2 million patients are diagnosed with colorectal cancer (CRC), and more than 600 thousand patients die as a direct or indirect result of the disease [ 1 ]. The 5-year survival rate among CRC patients with stage I disease is over …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Cellular Oncology publishes scientific contributions from various biomedical and clinical disciplines involved in basic and translational cancer research on the cell and tissue level, technical and bioinformatics developments in this area, and clinical applications. This includes a variety of fields like genome technology, micro-arrays and other high-throughput techniques, genomic instability, SNP, DNA methylation, signaling pathways, DNA organization, (sub)microscopic imaging, proteomics, bioinformatics, functional effects of genomics, drug design and development, molecular diagnostics and targeted cancer therapies, genotype-phenotype interactions.

A major goal is to translate the latest developments in these fields from the research laboratory into routine patient management. To this end Cellular Oncology forms a platform of scientific information exchange between molecular biologists and geneticists, technical developers, pathologists, (medical) oncologists and other clinicians involved in the management of cancer patients.

In vitro studies are preferentially supported by validations in tumor tissue with clinicopathological associations.
