    Neuroblastoma is an undifferentiated malignant tumor of the primitive neuroblasts. Orbital neuroblastoma is typically a metastatic tumor. We describe a two-days-old girl, who presented with a large tumor in her left orbit. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed that the tumor originated from the...

  • Astrocyte elevated gene-1 contributes to the pathogenesis of neuroblastoma. Lee, S.-G.; Jeon, H.-Y.; Su, Z.-Z.; Richards, J. E.; Vozhilla, N.; Sarkar, D.; Van Maerken, T.; Fisher, P. B. // Oncogene;7/2/2009, Vol. 28 Issue 26, p2476 

    Neuroblastoma, derived from neural crest progenitor cells, is the most common extracranial solid tumor of childhood. Astrocyte elevated gene-1 (AEG-1) is a primary mediator of tumor progression and metastasis in several human cancers. In this study, we investigated the potential contribution of...

    Neuroblastoma arises as a direct result of genetic disorder; therefore, it should be well treated and conquered by gene therapy in future. In this study, neuroblastoma cell line SH-SY5Y experiments, in vitro and in nude mice in vivo, were subjected to research thymidine kinase suicide gene to...
