The article discusses research being done on the effectiveness of including ch14.18 granulocyte-macrophage-colony-stimulating factor and interleukin-2 in the isotretinoin treatment of patients with neuroblastoma, which references a study by A. L. Yu and colleagues in a 2010 issue of the "New England Journal of Medicine."
