The Challenges of Sarcoma

Sarcoma Collection​​​​​​​

Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) constitute an uncommon and heterogeneous group of tumours of mesenchymal cell origin. The challenges facing clinicians is that the symptoms of benign and malignant STS often overlap and despite there being key prevalent warning signs, diagnosis can often be delayed by several months.

We are therefore pleased to produce an article series on the challenges of Sarcoma in collaboration with the Clinical Sarcoma Research journal, comprising review articles written by leading global experts in the field.

Call for papers: Precision Oncology

We are pleased to announce a new cross-journal thematic series on ‘Precision Oncology’ across a number of BMC journals within the oncology portfolio to bring together the latest research on precision oncology. The thematic series is now open for submission of original research and review articles
