Dear Colleagues,

Medical doctors and scientists are always looking for better ways to treat people with cancer. Metabolic reprogramming commonly occurs in tumor cells to sustain the high nutritional requirements of carcinogenesis and tumor growth. The biochemical features discriminating the tumor and normal cells, such as expression of certain proteins or metabolic vulnerabilities, are intensely studied regarding their potential to provide development of new anticancer treatments or predictive markers.

Potential contributors are invited to submit papers concerning characteristic features of cancer cells and their potential use for fighting cancer in any biochemical context. Particularly welcome are studies providing new insights into metabolism of cancer cells, targets for new anti-cancer agents, treatment resistance, etc., including the studies employing omics data. Demonstration of novel approaches for diagnostics and metabolic control of tumor growth are also appreciated.

Manuscripts should be submitted through the Editorial Publishing System at https://publish.sciencejournals.ru/. Before submitting a manuscript, please read the Instructions for authors at https://biochemistrymoscow.com/en/authors/.

Keywords: metabolism of cancer cells, mechanism of action of anticancer drugs, cytotoxic effects, targets for cancer treatment, cancer resistance
