Transcriptome Sequencing of Pediatric Neuroblastoma
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
Neuroblastoma is the most common extra-cranial solid tumor in children. It represents 8% to 10% of all childhood cancers. Stage 4 Neuroblastoma is characterized by its clinical heterogeneous outcome. The special category, stage 4S tumors (2-5% of all NB) are chemo-sensitive, and the patients show spontaneous regression. On the other hand, MYCN amplification (25-30% of all NB) is associated with poor outcome of neuroblastoma, thus we further categorize stage 4 neuroblastoma into MYCN non-amplified and MYCN amplified group. Here we use transcriptome sequencing to characterize the transcriptome in 29 stage 4 Neuroblastoma samples.
