Pooling worldwide data about childhood tumors helps researchers gauge aggressiveness of treatment

Sorting types of cancer into higher- and lower-risk groups is not merely a matter of scientific interest, but a matter of life and death. Yet cancers such as neuroblastoma behave in ways that defy easy categorization. Researchers at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have shown that genetic factors are more important than age or disease stage in assigning risk.
