Correlation between morphologic and other prognostic markers of neuroblastoma. A study of histologic grade, DNA index, N-myc gene copy number, and lactic dehydrogenase in patients in the Pediatric Oncology Group.
Histologic grades (HG), N-myc (NM) gene copy number, DNA index (DI), and serum lactic dehydrogenase (LDH) have been shown to be related to prognosis in neuroblastoma. The relationship between HG and nonmorphologic prognostic markers has not been investigated previously.
Each prognostic marker was determined independently and without the… (More)
