Poverty and Childhood Cancer Outcomes: A Novel Intervention Target [Video]

One in six children diagnosed with cancer in the United States lives in poverty, and despite uniform treatment in clinical trials, poverty-exposed children are more likely to relapse compared to children who are not exposed to poverty. Dana-Farber Cancer Institute seeks to improve childhood cancer outcomes by investigating poverty as a risk factor for relapse and developing novel poverty-targeted interventions. Listen to a presentation from Dana-Farber’s Kira Bona, MD, MPH, about her lab’s work to identify and alleviate poverty-associated outcome disparities in childhood cancers. The event is hosted by Joanne Wolfe, MD, MPH.

Kros Strain’s take on Rising Hope IPA | National Pediatric Cancer Foundation – A Beer with Atlas 169 [Video]

From the Can:”This is a truly original collaboration between The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation and participating breweries (1 per state) with all proceeds to benefit children who are battling cancer. The NPCF funds collaborative research in hospitals across the nation to fast trackless toxic, more targeted treatments that are saving many children’s lives. So, raise a brew and enjoy. Because every beer helps raise money and hope for these courageous kids.”That’s exactly what the Beer crew here at Atlas is doing.

Moreover, the number international collaborations and clinical trials for pediatric cancer are also rapidly growing.

Finally, ongoing trials are exploring therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) and pharmacokinetic (PK) monitoring for chemotherapy in pediatric patients.
