Two-pronged Attack on Neuroblastoma
How inhibiting both polyamine synthesis (with DFMO) and uptake (with new small molecule AMXT 1501) could delay tumor development.
Jonathan James | | Quick Read
The MYCN oncogene – highly upregulated in neuroblastoma – has long been regarded as an attractive target for therapy, but successful translation into the clinic has proven challenging (1). Attention thus turned to downstream pathways and, now, a multinational team of researchers has demonstrated the feasibility of targeting two aspects of a crucial pathway in cancer growth: polyamine synthesis and uptake (2).
