Biomarkers Journal is very important Journal to improve and progress precision medicine especially in gynecologic cancer treatment. New findings regarding drugs affecting signal transduction pathways and immune checkpoit blockers have been accumulated. Through these analyses, we have learned better findings for cancer treatment. I expect such new biomarkers paving the ways to new treatment strategies resulting in precision medicine and any other biomarkers being useful for early diagnosis and treatment sensitivity.
