The International Online Journal of Cancer & Therapeutics is a peer-reviewed open acess journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in all areas of Oncology. this practical journal also includes information on new products, new therapies and patient management, as well as reviews of the latest research. Cancer is a complex problem. The international effort to understand and control it involves clinicians trained in many branches of medicine and scientists from most biological disciplines, chemistry, pharmaceutical and physical sciences The International Online Journal of Cancer & Therapeutics exists to serve the needs of this diverse community, providing a forum for prompt communication of original and innovative research findings that have relevance to understanding the etiology of cancer and to improving the treatment and survival of patients.

The journal publishes important original studies, reviews, and perspectives within the major topic areas of biology of premalignancy, risk factors and risk assessment, early detection research, immunoprevention, and chemopreventive and other interventions, including the basic science behind them. This journal comprises preclinical, clinical and translational research, with special attention given to molecular discoveries and an emphasis on building a translational bridge between the basic and clinical sciences. Main focuses of interest include: systemic anticancer therapy (with specific interest on molecular targeted agents and new immune therapies), randomized trials (including negatives ones), top-level guidelines, and new fields currently emerging as key components of personalized medicine, such as molecular pathology, bioinformatics, modern statistics, and biotechnologies. Radiotherapy, surgery and pediatrics manuscripts can be considered if they display a clear interaction with one of the fields above or are paradigm-shifting.

Oncology is the diagnosis and treatment of cancers,including breast,prostate,colon,lung and ovarian cancers as well as brain tumors,leukemia,lymphoma and many other types of cancer.. A doctor who works in the field of oncology is called an oncologist. The primary regions of oncology are radiation, which is worried with radiation treatment, or radiotherapy; surgical, which is contained specialists who spend significant time in tumor evacuation; therapeutic, which manages disease drugs, including chemotherapy; and interventional, which includes interventional radiologists who have some expertise in insignificantly obtrusive picture guided tumor treatment.

Mohamed Labib Salem

Professor

Mohamed L. Salem (PhD, 1995) is the Professor of Immunology at Tanta University, Egypt and Visiting Professor at Hollings Cancer Center and Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Medical University of South Carolina, USA. Dr. Salem is the Director of Delta Development Research Center which is a regional branch of Academy of Scientific Research and Technology, Egypt; Director of the Grant, Innovation & Technology Transfer Center, and Director of Center of Excellence in Cancer research, Tanta University, Egypt. Dr. Salem obtained his PhD in 1995 through a channel system between Tanta University, Egypt and Kyushu University, Japan. From 1997 -2001, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Kyushu University, Japan and from 2002-2010 as an Assistant Professor at Medical University of South Carolina, USA. Dr. Salem is member of the National Committee for Professorship Promotion (Zoology) and National Committee for the Basic Science Sector, Supreme Council of Universities, Egypt. He is also a Member of the National Committee for the Biological Sciences and National Committee for Basic Sciences, Academy of Scientific Research and Technology, Egypt. He is also a founding Chairman of the Egyptian Society for Cancer Research (EACR) and among the founder members of the Middle Eastern Association for Cancer Research (MEACR), Canada. Dr. Salem won the State Incentive Award (2004) and the State Excellent Award (2010) in Basic Sciences from the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology, and Tanta University Estimated Award (2015), and Tanta University Esteemed Award in Basic Sciences 2015, Egypt based on his research on cancer immunotherapy. His h-index is 26 with 2924 citations and about 111 published articles in peer-reviewed journals. He has attended more than 100 national and international workshops and conferences in Immunology. He supervised more than 50 Master and PhD students in cancer-related works. He is a member of several editorial boards of peer-reviewed journals as well as ad hoc reviewer for more than 80 journals. He has been invited to give talks in cancer immunotherapy in Egypt, UAE, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, USA, Canada, and Canada. Dr Salem’s research focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying how cancer and HCV escape from host immunity, in particular the rules of immunoregulatory cells including lymphoid and myeloid lineages. Additionally his research has been focusing on developing effective anticancer immunotherapies strategies, in particular the use of adoptive cell therapy. His research projects have been funded by National Institute of Health, USA, Science and Technology Development Fund (STDF), Egypt, National Academy of Sciences, USA and Tanta University, Egypt, as well as by industry.
