Oncotarget: A Journal For A Cure

There are few things worse than finding out you have a mass or tumor somewhere in your body. Waiting for results to come back to confirm whether it is malignant or benign can be excruciating. A biopsy, or test to determine the presence, cause, or extent of a disease, can take up to 10 days, depending on how complicated the test is. Most people would classify that as the longest 10 days of their lives. This doesn’t affect only the patient, but their family members as well. Doctors are currently working on ways to combat these tumors that can cause diseases like cancer.

Oncology is the study of tumors or masses in the human body. In fact, “onco” literally means bulk, mass or tumor. A once-weekly journal that covers research on this subject is called Oncotarget. According to¬† Oncotarget will begin to publish 2 article per week on Tuesdays and Fridays. This journal concentrates on studies and medical procedures with an emphasis on how to cure and/or render a disease manageable. The journal also posts articles that are out of the scope of oncology, such as aging and chromosomes.
