Inheritance and Risk Several hereditary syndromes involve the endocrine or neuroendocrine glands. Multiple...
Dramatic improvements in survival have been achieved for children and adolescents with cancer.[ 1 ] Between 1975 and 2010, childhood cancer mortality decreased by more than 50%. For acute myeloid leukemia (AML), the 5-year survival rate increased over the same time from less than 20% to 68% for children younger than 15...

Research teams from around the world have made remarkable progress in the past decade in elucidating the genomic landscape of most types of childhood cancer. A decade ago it was possible to hope that targetable oncogenes, such as activated tyrosine kinases, might be identified in a high percentage of childhood cancers...
