Protect kids from risky imaging & increase early detection success by analyzing simple blood tests using multi-level/parameter algorithm & Cancer Differentiation Analysis devices; 30K cases confirm CDA identifies 16 cancers-often before tumors form.
Cancer Research Ideas - Pediatric Cancer (Archived)
Children are not just small adults; their cancers are different in many ways from those in older individuals. Improving childhood cancer outcomes requires both a better mechanistic understanding of cancer in general as well as an understanding of cancer in children specifically. Important issues to address include the molecular drivers of childhood cancer, which are often different from those of adult cancers; the causes of childhood cancer; and the development of therapies that are less toxic to children’s developing bodies.
The submission period for Pediatric Cancer ideas ended on July 1. However, we encourage you to sign up for regular e-mail updates about the National Cancer Moonshot Initiative at the Cancer Moonshot Milestones web page.
According to WHO/IARC children absorb two times higher cell phone radiation in the brain and 10 times higher radiation in the skull bone marrow as compared to adults.
Research shows higher brain cancer risk in those who started using phones young.
HAMLET binds to and kills many different types of cancer cells in vitro. It has been successfully tested on animals and has also had good effect in humans with cancer. The effect is to my knowledge limited in plasma. Hamlet has no known sideeffects..
Providing comprehensive tools that help families cope emotionally with a diagnosis, treatment and beyond.
NIH funding for childhood cancer research equals only 4% of the budget for cancer research), and funding for survivorship research is only a fraction. There are significant health risks to surviving cancer, especially for children.
Early integration of palliative care for children with cancer can mitigate suffering. There is a pressing need to accelerate research that defines how best to extend the benefits of early integration of palliative care in the cancer trajectory.
Medical treatments and lack of attention to the complications have led to frequent hospitalizations, more family involvement, increased treatment costs, etc., and ultimately reduced quality of life for children with cancer and their families.
This is in dedication to my father who was the ultimate Cancer Fighter! He was President of the National Association of Cancer Patients and all he wanted was to cure cancer! He felt he had a solution with medical isotopes but especially Radiogel.
The biggest requirement for new cells in a child will be in still developing cells, or cells with a quick turnover. These are cells where cancer could be produced if cell cycle is inhibited. At 6, the requirement to regenerate cells is diminished.
Pediatric cancer affects the whole family, and resources may be lacking to take a child to a research center for best quality of care and access to clinical trials.
A new corporation is needed to minimize cost and risk to biopharma of discovering and developing new anti-cancer agents for children. It will exploit new science and coordinate resources efficiently to bring effective new therapies to children.
The causes of pediatric cancer remain a mystery because its rarity necessitates case-control studies. However, now that variants related to ALL and NB are known, one can conceive of a putting together a prospective study among higher-risk kids
I have been working as a pediatric oncology social worker for 25 years. Three years into my career, my youngest child was diagnosed with lymphoma and died 6 months later. All he wanted to do was go to school and be "normal".
Accessing the tumor and determination of correct therapy are the 2 major challenges to treating DIPG. Jack's 12 Pebbles microchip technology offers determination of the best possible therapy for the individual child over the course of a weekend.
when there the adult cases are treated ferociously with the result yielding Clinical trails,the pediatric ones are lagging behind by miles.
