Cancer Cell is a high-profile forum for promoting significant advances in cancer research and oncology. The primary criterion for reviewing manuscripts is whether the studies make significant progress in answering important questions about naturally occurring cancers. Translational research is especially welcome at Cancer Cell.
Cancer Cell Market is also interested in publishing clinical studies, particularly those that lead to the establishment of new paradigms in cancer treatment, diagnosis, or prevention; those that provide important insights into cancer biology beyond what has been revealed by preclinical studies; and mechanism-based proof-of-principle clinical studies. When the tumour cells developed drug resistance, they were also transforming into stem cell-like cells, rendering them immune to the drugs.
