Future Oncology is celebrating its tenth anniversary by publishing a Special Focus issue documenting the past, present and future of several cancers. Such is the extent of the progress seen in all fields of oncology since the journal's debut in 2005, that authors were invited to document these advancements in the issue, with speculation as to how further progress will be made in the coming years. The journal is published by Future Medicine, an imprint of Future Science Group.

"This issue marks the 10th Anniversary of Future Oncology, a dynamic cancer journal highlighting the progress of various areas in oncology," commented Simon Lo, a member of the Future Oncology Editorial Board and contributor to the issue. "The journal is at the forefront of reporting and addressing the most important clinical and scientific issues as well as research findings in oncology."

The issue includes several review articles from renowned authors, covering areas such as: immunotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer, the development of stereotactic body radiotherapy, personalized therapy for colorectal cancer and fertility preservation in cancer patients. Editorial articles include coverage of image-guided brachytherapy in cervical cancer, metastatic gastric cancer and the role of chemotherapy in prostate cancer.

"We are excited to be publishing this Special Focus issue of Future Oncology, which includes a number of comprehensive review articles from diverse oncology specialties," commented Nick Ward, Commissioning Editor of Future Oncology.
