    This collection of papers illustrates how a simple indicator of systemic inflammation based on neutrophilia and/or lymphocytopenia can provide prognostic information in a wide range of cancer types.

    Radiotherapy is a key treatment modality in the clinical management of cancer. Advances in recent years have broadened the tool kit available to oncologists, including the development of proton beam therapy. With several proton beam centres opening globally, this high energy radiotherapy treatment is becoming increasingly accessible. Despite this, several questions remain around how to optimise delivery and support best clinical practice. This collection of articles explores some of the questions surrounding proton beam therapy and discusses recent advances in the delivery of radiotherapy.

    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.

    Increasing Body Mass Index (BMI) is a growing problem from several perspectives. Although it is well known that tobacco smoking greatly increases cancer risk, today, a higher proportion of the global population is affected by increased BMI, and a developing body of evidence now supports the role played by BMI in the risk of a large number of different cancers.

    The British Journal of Cancer publishes articles on a wide range of cancer research, including basic biology of therapeutic relevance, translational research, early- and late-phase trials, epidemiology, and precision medicine. Updated each month, our Editor's Pick showcases a curated selection of those articles which are stimulating the most interest via electronic communication and other methods. This Collection reflects the diversity, quality and relevance of the articles published in BJC. We hope you enjoy reading this Collection, and we welcome your correspondence on these studies.

    Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is a leading global cause of cancer death. Efforts to understand the drivers of CRC have uncovered several genetic determinants, but further work is needed to further elucidate its genetic aetiology, and to identify high risk individuals. Four new studies, supported by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) framework, are presented in this dedicated Collection on CRC cancer genetics. In the accompanying editorial, Luis Carvajal-Carmona (UC Davis, California) assesses their impact, and highlights the need for collaborative international research efforts to answer complex clinical questions.

    This Web Focus contains a collection of articles recently published in the British Journal of Cancer that reflect major advances in breast cancer over the last 2 years. Curated by our Editor-in-Chief, Adrian Harris (University of Oxford), these developments range from risk assessment and the interactions between genes and environment, to oncogenes such as MYC and its role in tumour metabolism, and dietary factors affecting inflammation.
