Current treatments for neuroblastoma tumors often involve surgical removal of the tumor, chemotherapy and radiation and even blood and marrow transplants when the cancer has metastasized. Researchers have found promising results in a new therapy involving injecting the herpes simplex virus into the tumor. This has previously been found to be effective in adults but new studies have shown it may also be of use in children. Researchers at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center have already successfully treated malignant abdominal tumors in children using this new viral therapy. Its use may also be viable in other types of cancers in adults and children.
