Neuroblastoma (NB) is a type of cancer that forms in certain types of nerve tissue. It most frequently starts from one of the adrenal glands, but can also develop in the neck, chest, abdomen, or spine. Symptoms may include bone pain, a lump in the abdomen, neck, or chest, or a painless bluish lump under the skin. Neuroblastoma is the most common cancer in babies and the third most common cancer in children after leukemia and brain cancer. IMR-32,SK-N-SH,SH-SY5Y and SK-N-BE(2) cell lines are the commonly used neuroblastoma cells derived from human.
