- High-dose rapid and standard induction chemotherapy for patients aged over 1 year with stage 4 neuroblastoma: a randomised trialAndrew D J Pearson
Children s Department, Institute of Cancer Research, Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton, Surrey, UK
Lancet Oncol 9:247-56. 2008..We aimed to assess whether an intensive chemotherapy protocol that had a 10-day interval between treatments would improve event-free survival (EFS) in patients aged 1 year or over with high-risk neuroblastoma...
- p53 is nuclear and functional in both undifferentiated and differentiated neuroblastomaLindi Chen
Northern Institute for Cancer Research, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK
Cell Cycle 6:2685-96. 2007..In conclusion, p53 is predominantly nuclear and functional in neuroblastoma regardless of differentiation status...
- Increased frequency of aberrations in the p53/MDM2/p14(ARF) pathway in neuroblastoma cell lines established at relapseJane Carr
Northern Institute for Cancer Research, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Cancer Res 66:2138-45. 2006..If these data are confirmed in neuroblastoma tumors, this suggests that p53-independent therapy and reactivation of inactive p53 approaches would be useful in the management of relapsed neuroblastoma...
- Regions syntenic to human 17q are gained in mouse and rat neuroblastomaMaria Łastowska
Institute of Human Genetics, International Centre for Life, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Genes Chromosomes Cancer 40:158-63. 2004..2 Mb from the previously defined region of 17q gain in humans as a likely location of the candidate gene or genes, and strongly suggests that the molecular etiology of neuroblastoma is similar in all three species...
- Cyclophosphamide metabolism in children with non-Hodgkin's lymphomaS Murray Yule
Department of Child Health, Yorkhill National Health Service Trust, Glasgow, United Kongdom
Clin Cancer Res 10:455-60. 2004..Modified chemotherapy strategies should be considered in patients who exhibit low rates of clearance of the parent drug and/or extensive production of inactive metabolites...

- The p53 pathway and its inactivation in neuroblastomaDeborah A Tweddle
Cancer Research Unit, The Medical School, University of Newcastle, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 4HH, UK
Cancer Lett 197:93-8. 2003..If p53 inactivation occurs frequently in relapsed tumours it may be appropriate to include p53 independent therapies in the initial management of high-risk neuroblastoma...
- Retinoid signalling and gene expression in neuroblastoma cells: RXR agonist and antagonist effects on CRABP-II and RARbeta expressionQuentin Campbell Hewson
Department of Child Health, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
J Cell Biochem 87:284-91. 2002..The possibility that RXR-homodimers mediate, in part, the induction of CRABP-II by 9-cis RA and RXR-specific ligands is discussed...

Department of Endocrinology, Medical Molecular Biology Group, Medical School, University of Newcastle, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 4HH, UK
J Cell Biochem 86:67-78. 2002..The results of this study suggest that interactions between retinoid receptors and other nuclear proteins may be critical determinants of retinoid responses in neural cells...
- Influence of isomerisation on the growth inhibitory effects and cellular activity of 13-cis and all-trans retinoic acid in neuroblastoma cellsGareth J Veal
Cancer Research Unit, Medical School, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, NE2 4HH, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK
Biochem Pharmacol 63:207-15. 2002..In summary, these results indicate either an intracellular conversion of 13-cis RA to ATRA or a selective uptake of ATRA and suggest that this may mediate the differential activity of 13-cis RA in neuroblastoma cell subtypes...
