About the book

Neuroblastoma is a complex genetic pediatric malignancy arising from the peripheral nervous system and affects infants and young children with a low survival rate. The source of neuroblastoma is from neural crest cells and the tumor has heterogeneous biological, morphological, genetic, and clinical presentations. There is a significant increase in our understanding of the genetic determinants and molecular events that predispose to the formation of neuroblastoma. Understanding of genetic basis of neuroblastoma has helped us to understand the molecular events which drive tumorigenesis, develop novel therapeutic strategies, and also to precisely stratifying the risk and to interpret the prognosis. This information facilitates identifying the high-risk patients who may get benefitted from combination chemotherapy before surgery or many adjuvant management options (autologous stem cell transplantation, local radiation, or immunotherapy).

The present book shall try to bring the researchers together to describe various characteristics of neuroblastomas including biological characteristics, various molecular markers, clinal behavior, imaging characteristics, management strategies including the role of modern immunotherapy, outcomes in these patients, and future scope of the research.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
