The "Metronomic" special issue of the Indian Journal of Cancer is out !

We are very glad to announce that the "Metronomic special issue" initiated by the Indian Journal of Cancer has been released. You may find below the titles of the articles (reviews, case reports, series) contained in this issue. All articles can be freely assessed on the website of the journal here. This is the very first metronomic special ever published, and we are very happy it is about metronomic in LMIC, further highlighting the growing interest in this approach. We are also very proud to have been commissioned to write an accompanying editorial.
