      New study finds childhood cancer survivors commonly stay at jobs to keep health insurance

      ( University of Utah Health ) The results of a national cancer survey find a significant number of childhood cancer survivors are worried about keeping their health insurance, to the point of letting it affect their career decisions. The findings were published today in JAMA Oncology.

      Abstract PURPOSE: Diseases associated with prior treatment, such as obesity, have been described in cancer survivors. Recent studies have shown that current estimates of overweight do not differ from that in the general population, suggesting the influence of environmental factors, such as dietary intake.

      Abstract Neuroblastoma, an embryonal cancer of neural crest origin, shows metastases frequently at diagnosis. In this issue of Cancer Cell, Delloye-Bourgeois and colleagues demonstrate that neuroblastoma cell lines and patient-derived xenografts engraft and adopt a metastatic program in chick embryos.

    6. Diet, exercise modifications can have ‘tremendous impact’ on pediatric cancer outcomes

      Joya Chandra Keri Schadler Diet and exercise may improve treatment outcomes among pediatric patients with cancer, according to a study conducted at The University of Texas MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital. In addition, introducing energy balance interventions may reduce the risk for late effects during survivorship. Researchers at MD Anderson reviewed 67 pediatric oncology studies to evaluate the relationship between diet and exercise.

    7. Study Identifies Patients Who Benefit Most From Dinutuximab-based Immunotherapy

      Using data from a randomized phase III clinical trial of neuroblastoma patients (treated with or without immunotherapy) performed by the Children’s Oncology Group, researchers from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health found that a subset of patients, identified by the presence of a certain set of genes, were more likely to benefit from […]

    9. Researchers Identify Gene Variants Linked to a High-Risk Children's Cancer

      Pediatric researchers investigating the childhood cancer neuroblastoma have identified common gene variants that raise the risk of an aggressive form of that disease. The discovery, in the MMP20 gene, may assist doctors in better diagnosing subtypes of neuroblastoma.

      When good immune cells turn bad

      Investigators at the Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at Children's Hospital Los Angeles have identified new findings about an immune cell - called a tumor-associated macrophage - that promotes cancer instead of fighting it. They have identified the molecular pathway, known as STAT3, as the mechanism the immune cell uses to foster neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer, and have demonstrated use of a clinically available agent, ruxolitinib, to block the pathway.

      Does Health Insurance Status Affect Childhood Cancer Survival?

      Privately insured children and those with Medicaid at the time of a cancer diagnosis experience largely similar survival trends, with slight evidence for an increased risk of cancer death in children who were uninsured at diagnosis, finds a new study from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis.

      Modulating T-cell metabolism uncovers new technology for enhancing immunotherapy

      T lymphocytes found in tumors and implicated in killing tumor cells cope with the shortage of oxygen and nutrients in the tumor microenvironment by using fat as the main source of energy. Promoting a switch from glucose to fatty acid to generate energy enhances T cell antitumor activity. These findings from a study conducted at The Wistar Institute were published in the journal Cancer Cell.

    16. Out-of-pocket health costs can cause financial problems for survivors of childhood cancer

      Out-of-pocket health costs can cause financial problems for survivors of childhood cancer

      Adult survivors of childhood cancer face an increased likelihood of financial difficulties related to out-of-pocket costs for their health care, compared with adults not affected by childhood cancer. In their report published online in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, investigators from the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Cancer Center also report that survivors of childhood cancer who pay higher out-of-pocket costs were more than eight times more likely to have trouble paying their medical bills than were either survivors not facing higher out-of-pocket costs or adults without a history of childhood cancer.

      The NIH established the Kids First Data Resource Center, a pediatric cancer and rare disease data program that will enable clinicians and researchers to collaborate and access multiple genomic datasets.The resource center — the first of its kind in the pediatric research community — is designed to create a centralized, cloud-based database and discovery portal of clinical and genetic sequence data from various pediatric cancers and structural birth defects cohorts, such as congenital heart defects, hearing loss and cleft palate. The program also will develop analytical tools to provide access to this large-scale data for use in the discovery of novel ...
