Featured Article: New therapeutic strategies to treat human cancers expressing mutant p53 proteins

New Content ItemA commonly mutated gene found in human cancers is TP53. As TP53 is a tumor suppressor gene, mutations in it can result in the production of mutant p53 proteins exhibiting oncogenic functions which can cause increased chemoresistance, uncontrolled cell proliferation, interference with normal tissue architecture and the promotion of metastasis, migration and invasion, to name a few.

In this review, G. Blandino and S. Di Agostino discuss and summarize the recent advances made in cancer research towards the treatment of cancers expressing mutant p53 proteins. In particular, inhibitors of signaling pathways that are controlled by the mutant p53 proteins are highlighted, including how these inhibitors can be applied clinically as a potential therapeutic strategy for the treatment of cancer.

Call for papers: Translational oncology

We are pleased to announce that a number of BioMed Central journals have come together to create a new cross-journal series on translational oncology.

Guest Edited by Prof Tommaso Dragani (Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori, Italy), the series is now accepting submissions of research articles that provide important developments in cancer research. Preclinical studies should provide a significant advance in knowledge, and have clear potential for strong clinical impact.  For more information on the series, please click here to visit the series page.
