The daily intake of low-dose aspirin lowers the risk of several cancers among the adults. The continuous administration of low-dose aspirin to TH-MYCN mice (a model of pediatric neuroblastoma) delays tumor outgrowth and decreases tumor-promoting inflammation by inhibiting regulatory cells of the innate immune system as well as immunosuppressive mediators such as transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) and thromboxane A2. These findings pave novel avenues for the clinical management of neuroblastoma.
