Access from EThOS:
Non-random defects affecting chromosome 8 are commonly observed in medulloblastoma (MB), the most common malignant brain tumour in childhood, suggesting an important role for this chromosome in MB development. The aims of this study were to identify critical regions of chromosome 8 involved in MB, and to assess the role of genes contained with these regions in medulloblastoma pathogenesis.
