      New strategy against childhood cancer

      Neuroblastoma is a cancer in children that originates in the sympathetic nervous system and has a high mortality. Current treatment includes chemotherapy and radiotherapy with their potentially severe side effects; there is therefore an urgent need for a new improved drug. One potential treatment strategy is to use a drug to target deviant molecular signalling caused by changes in genes.

      Moringa isothiocyanate complexed with α-cyclodextrin: a new perspective in neuroblastoma treatment.

      BMC Complement Altern Med. 2017 Jul 14;17(1):362

      Authors: Giacoppo S, Iori R, Rollin P, Bramanti P, Mazzon E

      Abstract BACKGROUND: Several lines of evidence suggest the consume of natural products for cancer prevention or treatment. In particular, isothiocyanates (ITCs) exerting anti-cancer properties, have received great interest as potential chemotherapeutic agents.

    4. New potential treatment for aggressive types of childhood cancer

      New potential treatment for aggressive types of childhood cancer

      A combination of substances that impacts chemical modifications in the DNA of tumours and triggers the tumours to differentiate into harmless nerve cells could represent a new method of treating aggressive forms of neuroblastoma. The new method has been proposed by researchers at Karolinska Institutet, after studies using mice showed that the combination treatment resulted in a significant suppression in tumour growth.

    5. New biomarker assay detects neuroblastoma with greater sensitivity

      Investigators have developed and tested a new biomarker assay for quantifying disease and detecting the presence of neuroblastoma even when standard evaluations yield negative results for the disease. Researchers provide the first systematic comparison of standard imaging evaluations versus the new assay that screens for five different neuroblastoma-associated genes and determine that the new assay improves disease assessment and provides prediction of disease progression.

    8. Potential for more targeted treatments of neuroblastoma tumors

      Genetic variations appear to pre-dispose children to developing certain severe forms of neuroblastoma, according to new research. The findings lay the groundwork for developing more targeted treatments for particularly deadly variations of the cancer.

    9. Accelerating Drug Development for Neuroblastoma - New Drug Development Strategy: An Innovative Therapies for Children with Cancer, European Network for Cancer Research in Children and Adolescents and International Society of Paediatric Oncology Europe Neu

      "The current drug development model has been slow, associated with significant attrition, and few new drugs have been developed for neuroblastoma. The Neuroblastoma New Drug Development Strategy (NDDS) has: 1) established a group with expertise in drug development; 2) prioritised targets and drugs according to tumour biology (target expression, dependency, pre-clinical data; potential combinations; biomarkers), identifying as priority targets ALK, MEK, CDK4/6, MDM2, MYCN (druggable by BET bromodomain, aurora kinase, mTORC1/2) BIRC5 and checkpoint kinase 1; 3) promoted clinical trials with target-prioritised drugs. Drugs showing activity can be rapidly transitioned via parallel randomised trials into front-line studies. Expert ...

    11. Appeal On Refusal Of Children’s Cancer Treatment Upheld Solving Kids’ Cancer Successfully Challenges NICE Decision

      Appeal On Refusal Of Children’s Cancer Treatment Upheld Solving Kids’ Cancer Successfully Challenges NICE Decision

      "The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has today announced that it has upheld the appeal by Solving Kids’ Cancer against the Institute’s decision not to recommend dinutuximab for treating high-risk neuroblastoma. The decision on whether to recommend dinutuximab will now be referred back to the Appraisal Committee for reconsideration. Solving Kids’ Cancer had argued that NICE had exceeded its powers and was in breach of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and that using a 10-year cure point as the basis for the drug’s effectiveness was unreasonable given the evidence before it."

      Car T cell therapy can now target solid tumors: Mouse study

      "The cancer cell marker that Johnson and her team identified was a specific change in protein glycosylation, that is, a unique pattern of sugars decorating a protein found on the cell surface. In collaboration with investigators from the University of Copenhagen and University of Chicago, the researchers developed novel CAR T cells that express a monoclonal antibody called 5E5, which specifically recognizes a sugar modification--the Tn glycan on the mucin 1 (MUC1) protein--that is absent on normal cells but abundant specifically on cancer cells."
