      Parental perception of child vulnerability in childhood cancer survivors.

      Pediatr Blood Cancer. 2018 Jul 19;:e27364

      Authors: Staba Hogan MJ, Ross WL, Balsamo L, Mitchell HR, Kadan-Lottick NS

      Abstract BACKGROUND: Parents' perception of their children's vulnerability to illness following cancer treatment is largely unknown, but is important to understand given known challenges of transitioning survivors to postcancer care.

      Nanoparticles give immune cells a boost

      ( Massachusetts Institute of Technology ) MIT researchers have devised a novel way to boost the effectiveness of T cell therapy against solid tumors. By attaching nanoparticle 'backpacks' carrying immune-stimulating drugs directly to T cells, the MIT engineers showed that they could enhance those T cells' response without inducing harmful side effects.

    4. Nanoparticles That Reshape the Tumor Milieu Create a Therapeutic Window for Effective T-cell Therapy in Solid Malignancies

      Nanoparticles That Reshape the Tumor Milieu Create a Therapeutic Window for Effective T-cell Therapy in Solid Malignancies

      A major obstacle to the success rate of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR-) T-cell therapy against solid tumors is the microenvironment antagonistic to T cells that solid tumors create. Conventional checkpoint blockade can silence lymphocyte antisurvival pathways activated by tumors, but because they are systemic, these treatments disrupt immune homeostasis and induce autoimmune side effects. Thus, new technologies are required to remodel the tumor milieu without causing systemic toxicities.

      New method to preserve boy cancer patient fertility being developed

      Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) and Soroka University Medical Center researchers in Beer-Sheva, Israel are developing a cell culture system that for the first time can change testicular stem cells into sperm-like cells that may enable future fertility for boys with prepubertal cancer.

    8. Network Modeling of microRNA-mRNA Interactions in Neuroblastoma Tumorigenesis Identifies miR-204 as a Direct Inhibitor of MYCN

      Network Modeling of microRNA-mRNA Interactions in Neuroblastoma Tumorigenesis Identifies miR-204 as a Direct Inhibitor of MYCN

      Neuroblastoma is a pediatric cancer of the sympathetic nervous system where MYCN amplification is a key indicator of poor prognosis. However, mechanisms by which MYCN promotes neuroblastoma tumorigenesis are not fully understood. In this study, we analyzed global miRNA and mRNA expression profiles of tissues at different stages of tumorigenesis from TH-MYCN transgenic mice, a model of MYCN-driven neuroblastoma.

    11. Erythropoietin enhances migration of human neuroblastoma cells: in vitro studies and potential therapeutic implications.

      Erythropoietin enhances migration of human neuroblastoma cells: in vitro studies and potential therapeutic implications.

      J Cancer Stem Cell Res. 2017;5:

      Authors: Poniewierska-Baran A, Rajewska-Majchrzak J, Ratajczak MZ

      Abstract The erythropoietin receptor (EpoR) is expressed by cells from the erythroid lineage; however, evidence has accumulated that it is also expressed by some other non-hematopoietic tissues including several solid tumor cells and proposed candidates for cancer stem cells. This is an important concern, because recombinant erythropoietin (EPO) is frequently employed in cancer patients as a drug to ameliorate anemia related to chemo/radiotherapy. In our studies, we employed three human neuroblastoma ...

      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.
