Presenting the Journal of Oncological Studies

Editorial Article

Dr. Mutian Zhang
Oncology has reached its most current stage, which emphasizes precise and personalized treatments, in addition to accurate diagnosis and cancer prevention. As a result, clinicians and researchers are becoming increasingly specialized. Simultaneously, elucidation of information in each specialized field is exploding. There are, accordingly, countless scholarly journals that concentrate on the nuanced and specialized fields of oncological research and practice. Realizing that the ultimate goal of oncological study is patient care, I am very interested in knowing to what degree clinicians are concerned with progress in oncological studies (including outside their specific discipline), and if so, which journals are their best resources to provide high-quality multidisciplinary information.

Alpha-Methyl-L-tryptophan as a novel, dual-target, anticancer drug for multiple cancer types

Conference Proceeding

Dr. Vadivel Ganapathy

-Methyl-L-tryptophan (-MLT) is currently used in tracer quantities in humans as a PET (positron emission tomography) probe in 11C-labeled form to study the status of serotonergic neurons in the brain. As it is a tryptophan derivative, it crosses the blood-brain barrier via the amino acid transporter LAT1 (SLC7A5) and is taken up into serotonergic neurons for subsequent conversion into -methyl serotonin.

Scope of the Journal

Journal of Oncological Studies

Areas covered by the journal include, but are not limited to, cellular and molecular mechanisms of cancer, tumor microenvironment, cancer metastasis, latest developments in the field of cancer therapeutics, cancer prevention and epidemiology. We also look forward to oncological clinical studies, which foray to establish new standards in diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer. Articles on the latest methods, techniques and technology used in cancer research are also welcome. The Journal of Oncology is also interested in translational cancer research articles, which further the fight again cancer beyond preclinical studies.
