For many forms of childhood cancer, we’ve seen little to no advancement in treatment options for over 30 years.
There are new discoveries made in research labs, but sadly they are rarely if ever translated into new treatments for children. The process of turning a new scientific discovery into a new treatment is tedious, time-consuming, and rarely generates big profits. Kids wait for cures in hospital beds while potential discoveries lie dormant in scientific journals. Today we still have childhood cancers without any effective treatments upon diagnosis or relapse.
One in every 5 children has one of these incurable cancers that even 40 years of ongoing research doesn’t address. To overcome this stalemate, cc-TDI is embarking upon a bold scientific course of discovery to send more targeted drugs into clinical trials for those childhood cancers that have the most dire outcomes.
