March 16, 2015

Read the Perspective from Tobias Else, MD

Genomic maps of pediatric adrenocortical tumors have revealed aberrant genetic and chromosomal changes that drive cancer, along with the sequence of changes that trigger it, according to research published in Nature Communications.

“Pediatric adrenocortical tumors had never been analyzed on a genomic scale before,” Gerard P. Zambetti, PhD, of the department of biochemistry, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee said in a news release.
