Abstract

Age, MYCN status, stage, and histology have been used as neuroblastoma (NB) risk factors for decades. Serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and serum ferritin are reproducible, easily obtained, and prognostic, though never used in risk stratification, except one German trial. We analyzed the prognostic strength of LDH and ferritin, overall, within high-risk NB, and by era, using the International Neuroblastoma Risk Group Data Commons. Children with NB (1990-2016) were categorized into LDH (n = 8867) and ferritin (n = 8575) risk groups using EFS. Cox models compared the prognostic strength of LDH and ferritin to age, MYCN status, and INSS stage. Higher LDH conferred worse EFS, overall (5-year EFS) (100-899 IU/L: 76 ± 0.6%; 0-99 or 900-1399 IU/L: 60 ± 1.2%; ≥1400 IU/L: 36 ± 1.2%; P < .0001), and in high-risk NB post-2009 (3-year EFS) (117-381 IU/L: 67 ± 8.9%; 382-1334 IU/L: 58 ± 4.4%; 0-116 or ≥1335 IU/L: 46 ± 3.9%; P = .003). Higher ferritin conferred worse EFS, overall (5-year EFS) (1-29 ng/mL: 87 ± 0.9%; 0 or 30-89 ng/mL: 74 ± 0.8%; ≥90 ng/mL: 48 ± 0.9%; P < .0001), and in high-risk NB post-2009 (3-year EFS) (1-53 ng/mL: 71 ± 9.3%; 0 or 54-354 ng/mL: 55 ± 4.7%; ≥355 ng/mL: 34 ± 6.1%; P = .0008).

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
