Editorial Comment to the November 2017 Issue of IMARS Highlights

IMARS Highlights Vol 12-6_Nov2017

Editorial comments

In this issue, we selected one article highlighted the link between advanced glycation end-products (RAGE) and cancer, written by Prof. Yasuhiko Yamamoto and Dr. Seiichi Munesue at Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Vascular Biology, Kanazawa University Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Kanazawa, Japan.

In this article, they focused on the pathogenic contribution of RAGE on tumor progression as well as tumor metastasis. Especially, they summarized the updated crucial role of RAGE on cancer and emphasize the possibility of RAGE or glycation as a potential target for cancer prevention and treatment.

I deeply thank their great contributions to the IMARS Highlights. The IMARS Highlights editors always look forward to submission of your articles, comments to any kinds of issues published in IMARS Highlights and other glycation-related issues in the field of food and medical sciences.
