Neuroblastoma (NB) is at the top of the list of causes of death for childhood malignancies. This is due to the intrinsic resistance of NB to treatment but also to its relative rarity and the consequent difficulties of conducting adequate clinical and biological studies. More than 80% of NB cases diagnosed in low/middle income countries are not offered curative treatment or palliative therapy. This project, supported financially by the Umberto Veronesi Foundation (Milan, Italy), with a grant of €122,000 over two years (2011-2012), has the objective of developing an international database for patients with NB in low/middle income countries. This initiative builds on an international cooperation project headed by the St. Jude Children’s Research Center, Memphis-USA: The Pediatric Oncology Network Database (POND) (www.ponds4kids.org).
