Patient-targeted molecular therapiesSection edited by Francesco Chiappelli
The mission of this section is to enrich the overall mandate of the journal through effectively capturing the growing sector of molecular targeted therapies with broad therapeutic applicability, benefiting from a patient-centered outcomes research focus and translational effectiveness approach, to generate adequate information during research and early development stages, as well as consensus on the best available evidence.
This section has a unique and defining objective and rationale relative to the other sections that focus primarily on translational immunology and oncology. In contrast, this section will add the complementary discourse between translational research and translational effectiveness. In doing so, it will expand the overall vision of the journal, and address current, timely and cutting edge research and reviews about patient-centered targeted therapies, in context of translating cost and benefit effectiveness to specific clinical settings.
