Gene sequencing project finds family of drugs with promise for treating childhood tumor

Drugs that enhance a process called oxidative stress were found to kill rhabdomyosarcoma tumor cells growing in the laboratory and possibly bolstered the effectiveness of chemotherapy against this aggressive tumor of muscle and other soft tissue. The findings are the latest from the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital-Washington University Pediatric Cancer Genome Project and appear in the Dec. 9 edition of the scientific journal Cancer Cell.
