      When LMO1 Meets MYCN, Neuroblastoma Is Metastatic.

      Cancer Cell. 2017 Sep 11;32(3):273-275

      Authors: Liu Z, Thiele CJ

      Abstract LMO1 is a high-risk neuroblastoma susceptibility gene, but how LMO1 cooperates with MYCN in neuroblastoma tumorigenesis is unclear. In this issue of Cancer Cell, Zhu et al. develop a novel zebrafish model that elucidates a mechanism by which LMO1 and MYCN synergistically initiate neuroblastoma and contribute to metastatic disease progression.

    16. Combined epigenetic and differentiation-based treatment inhibits neuroblastoma tumor growth and links HIF2{alpha} to tumor suppression [Medical Sciences]

      Neuroblastoma is a pediatric cancer characterized by variable outcomes ranging from spontaneous regression to life-threatening progression. High-risk neuroblastoma patients receive myeloablative chemotherapy with hematopoietic stem-cell transplant followed by adjuvant retinoid differentiation treatment. However, the overall survival remains low; hence, there is an urgent need for alternative therapeutic approaches. One feature...
