    The Institute of Medicine defines disparities as “racial or ethnic differences in the quality of health care that are not due to access-related factors or clinical needs, preferences, and appropriateness of intervention.” This was certainly well demonstrated in the recent COVID pandemic where there were marked differences in morbidity and mortality in minority groups. These inequalities occur in all age groups and diseases compared to non-minorities. A disproportionate number of cancer deaths occur among racial and ethnic minorities in most Western countries. The causes have been extensively investigated and highlighted, and include a wide range of intersecting problems. Thus, the system itself, access to the system, communication, nutrition, education, housing, job stability, trust amongst others. Many extensive reviews have been published but if anything the problems are becoming worse with a decrease in standard of living, health care budgets and education. In this collection we publish a range of original research and reviews from the British Journal of Cancer, Leukemia and Blood Cancer Journal highlighting the problems and suggesting solutions to some of these issues. The editors welcome future submissions to expand this collection further.

    In recent years we have seen continued growth in the field of precision medicine. Developments in technology have yielded the ability to detect many tumour-relevant entities in blood samples, including circulating tumour DNA, RNA, extracellular vesicles, tumour cells and tumour-educated immune cells. This Collection on Liquid biopsy features Special Issue content guest edited by Professor Angela Cox (University of Sheffield, UK,) and Professor Klaus Pantel (University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany) and includes a curated set of research articles and commissioned content from leading researchers.

    Key issues in optimum cancer management and prevention may be greatly aided by artificial intelligence (AI), particularly deep learning and reinforcement learning methods. This AI Applied to Cancer collection, curated by Faraz Janan (Imperial College London, UK) with the assistance of Louise Wilkinson (Oxford Breast Imaging Centre, UK), provides a collection of articles and commissioned content highlighting the state-of-the-art available AI models and techniques, limitations related to the AI applications in a clinical setup, and patient perspectives and the future of AI in cancer management.

    May is Brain Cancer Awareness Month and in this Collection we highlight a selection of recent Reviews and research Articles published in BJC focusing on research into this cancer of unmet need, covering the insights into the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying in brain cancer, improvements in diagnostic and prognostic markers, experimental therapeutics and outcomes from clinical trials continuing to develop treatment for patients.

  • Series |

    With an ever-growing body of oncology research, BJC Reviews seek to summarise and condense that information into thought-provoking commentaries. They cover a broad remit of oncology research, from the cellular and molecular events that underpin tumorigenesis and disease progression, to existing and emerging therapeutics and clinical cancer management. Our recent review articles are presented for you in this evolving Collection; we hope you enjoy reading them.
