Investing in the Biology of Childhood Cancer in the 19

History 1990s Investing in the Biology of Childhood Cancer in the 1990s While scientists in the decades before were hitting childhood cancer with chemo without knowing much about how the cancer actually worked, Dr. Mackall considers the 1990s a new era — the era of investment in the biology of childhood cancer. By going back to the lab, researchers were beginning to gain insight into the inner workings of a host of kids’ cancers. Still, it wasn’t enough. By this time, adult cancer researchers had already developed targeted therapies, giving oncologists working with adult patients another, less toxic tool beyond chemotherapy and radiation. Pediatric cancer research wasn’t there yet. “We started to get smarter in the 90s, but it was a little bit of a dry spell in terms of clinical advances, because we had increasing insights, but we didn’t have drugs to target the tumors,” Dr. Mackall said. It wasn’t for lack of trying — pediatric tumors just happen to work differently than adult cancers, she explained. “They don’t have the same kind of mutations the adult cancers have. It’s not as if we didn’t try just as hard or get just as smart. These tumors are easier to treat with chemo but they’re harder to treat with the small molecules.” As the 1990s came to a close and the millennium dawned, the payoff from that investment in biology may not have been a glut of targeted agents, but it was still highly valuable. In deeply studying the cancers, researchers discovered that within what they thought was one type of childhood cancer, there are a multitude of variations. Some of these are more vicious than others and require more intense treatment. Others are less aggressive and require less treatment. So, doctors began to classify children’s cancers at diagnosis to determine the level of treatment that was most likely to cure them with the least long-term damage. This is called therapy stratification. “We’ve come to understand that giving more chemotherapy is not always better, that there is a price that you pay in terms of late effects,” Dr. Mackall said. “So one of the best things that you can do for your patient is figure out who you’re over-treating.”

Many of the symptoms can be described using an acronym provided by The Pediatric Oncology Resource Center. Continued, unexplained weight loss Headaches, often with early morning vomiting Increased swelling or persistent pain in the bones, joints, back, or legs Lump or mass, especially in the abdomen, neck, chest, pelvis, or armpits Development of excessive bruising, bleeding, or rash Constant, frequent, or persistent infections A whitish color behind the pupil Nausea that persists or vomiting without nausea Constant tiredness or noticeable paleness Eye or vision changes that occur suddenly and persist Recurring or persistent fevers of unknown origin If you are concerned about any changes in your child, please talk with your family doctor. Your doctor will ask how long and how often your child has been experiencing the symptom(s), in addition to other questions. This is to help figure out the cause of the problem, called a diagnosis.

Дорогие друзья, фонд “BeLiF” просит Вас поддержать наш флешмоб и вместе с нами напомнить всем, что детский рак - излечим! В развитых странах выздоравливает 70-90% онкобольных детей, а в Украине из-за нехватки медикаментов, расходных материалов и больничных инфекций мы теряем каждого второго ребенка. И это нужно менять. Этим детям можно помочь! Этих детей можно вылечить. Три простых шага могут изменить жизнь детей больных раком: 1. окажите благотворительную помощь на любую сумму; 2. выложите в социальные сети свою перевернутую фотографию с хештегом #перевернисвiтдитини; 3. передайте эстафету своим друзьям. Вместе мы поможем детям выздороветь, ведь: 💠 30 грн - это 1 день без тошноты для ребенка, проходящего курс химиотерапии; 💠 50 грн - это 1 месяц обеспечения ребенка сменными системами для капельниц; 💠 100 грн - это 1 флакон антибактериального препарата, который защитит ребенка от внешних инфекций, пока его организм ослаблен после курса химиотерапии. 💠 1000 грн - это 5 таблеток противоопухолевого препарата, который будет доставлен в Украину. Присоединяйтесь! ___________________________ Помочь можно: ✅ сделать перевод с любой банковской карты Visa, MasterCard на сайте belif.org нажав "Помочь". ✅ Paypal: blagfond.belif@gmail.com ✅ ПриватБанк: 5168 7573 9924 3064 карта оформлена на Краснокутская С.В.
