A recent genomic study of neuroblastoma reinforces the challenges of treating the most aggressive forms of this disease. Contrary to expectations, the researchers found relatively few recurrent gene mutations — mutations that would suggest new targets for neuroblastoma treatment. Instead, the investigators have refocused on how neuroblastoma tumors evolve in response to medicine and other factors.
