The Online International  Journal of Onco Scientific Networks & Oncology 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.

Raffaele Palmirotta

Professor

Raffaele Palmirotta received his M.D. degree in 1991 at the University of Chieti, Italy.  Specialized in Clinical Pathology(summa cum laude) in 1996 and in Medical Genetic in 2006 at the University ofChieti, Italy. In 2001 Ph.D. in "Molecular diagnostic techniques for the study of hereditary cancer and gene therapy" at the University of Chieti, Italy. In 2012 he completed a Master in “Forensic Genetic”, University of Rome “Tor Vergata” and in 2016 a Master in “Cytogenetic” University of Rome “Roma 3”, Italy.

His major scientific interest is focused on translational research involving:

  • New diagnostic approaches for cancer diagnosis: from the detection of serum tumor markers and the biomolecular detection tumor cells in blood and bone marrow to proteomics.
  • Molecular evaluation of genes involved in metabolic syndrome  (i.e., IRS1, IRS2, OB etc.)
  • Translationalresearch  in Oncology: evaluation of the clinical usefulness of new diagnostic and/or prognostic parameters in Clinical Oncology.
  • Molecular evaluation of genes involved in gastrointestinal and breast inherited cancer (i.e., hMLH1, hMSH2, APC, BRCA1, BRAC2, etc.)
  • Molecular evaluation of genomic instability of human cancer, and novel mechanisms of cancer progression.
  • Pharmacogenomic and pharmacogenetic of anticancer, cardiovascular and neurological drugs.
  • Association from human patology and genomic sequence variants (SNPs)
  • Identification of biological identity using genetic forensic tool
  • Biobanking and biobanking applied sciencesBiobanking. Active participation in the creation and maintenance of a Biological Bank Multidisciplinary Interisituzionale, with particular interest in the design, definition, structuring and publication of dedicated Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) aimed at the cryopreservation of biological samples useful for the extraction of nucleic acids.
