      Abstract INTRODUCTION: Treatment for children with clinically aggressive, high-risk neuroblastoma remains challenging. Less than 50% of patients with high-risk neuroblastoma will survive long-term with current therapies, and survivors are at risk for serious treatment-related late toxicities.

    9. PRC2-Mediated Transcriptomic Alterations at the Embryonic Stage Govern Tumorigenesis and Clinical Outcome in MYCN-Driven Neuroblastoma

      Pediatric cancers such as neuroblastoma are thought to involve a dysregulation of embryonic development. However, it has been difficult to identify the critical events that trigger tumorigenesis and differentiate them from normal development. In this study, we report the establishment of a spheroid culture method that enriches early-stage tumor cells from TH-MYCN mice, a preclinical model of neuroblastoma.

      Cell Syst. 2017 Sep 27;5(3):161-162

      Authors: Arora M, Spencer SL

      Abstract Live-cell imaging demonstrates that a subset of neuroblastoma cells evades chemotherapy-induced death if they are in early G1 phase of the cell cycle at the time of drug treatment and have sufficiently high levels of MYCN.

      Authors: Braekeveldt N, Bexell D

      Abstract The prognosis for children with high-risk neuroblastoma is often poor and survivors can suffer from severe side effects. Predictive preclinical models and novel therapeutic strategies for high-risk disease are therefore a clinical imperative.

      Authors: Malone CF, Stegmaier K

      Abstract In this issue of Cancer Cell, Bosse et al. report GPC2 as a therapeutic target in neuroblastoma. They show that GPC2 is selectively expressed on the cell surface of neuroblastoma and is a dependency in this disease. Moreover, they demonstrate the therapeutic potential of an antibody-drug conjugate targeting GPC2.

      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.
