Abstract: 
Recent phenomenal advancements in the genomic and proteomic technologies and rapid breakthroughs in the interpretation of large gene expression datasets have enabled scientists to comprehensively characterize the gene signatures involved in ferroptosis. Ferroptosis is an iron-dependent form of non-apoptotic cell death that has gained worthwhile attention of both basic and clinical researchers. Ferroptosis has dichotomous, context-dependent functions both as a tumor suppressor and promoter of carcinogenesis. Essentially, pharmacological modulation of ferroptosis by its induction as well as its inhibition holds enormous potential to overcome drug-resistance and to improve the therapeutic potential of chemotherapeutic drugs in wide variety of cancers.

We have witnessed incredible and ever-growing interest among clinical and basic researchers in characterization of regulators of the ferroptosis in cancer and in reaping the full benefits of this wealth of information to improve cancer prevention and treatment. Ferroptosis has a highly context-dependent and complex role in carcinogenesis and metastasis. Design and development of translational anticancer agents is challenging and relies on continuing research for a better understanding of the regulatory mechanisms and signaling pathways which mechanistically modulate ferroptosis.
