    Childhood cancer: The four survival strategies of tumor cells

    ( Lund University ) Cancer cells in children tend to develop by following four main trajectories -- and two of them are linked to relapse of the disease, research led by Lund University in Sweden shows. The four strategies can occur simultaneously in a single tumor, according to the study that is now published in Nature Genetics.

    1. The strategies are key as they give us an indication of the evolutionary capacity a tumour has at the time of discovery. Patients with the first two variants generally have good outcomes, while the latter two strategies are associated with risk of relapse
