      Clinical Trials for Child Cancer Treatments

      Cancer in children can be daunting, but kids with medical support can fight against it. When conventional cancer treatments fade, cancer clinical trials for children become the best alternative. They serve as a new partner in the fight against this disease, bringing hope for enhanced survival rates and minimized side effects. The final objective is to ensure a brighter, healthier future for children.


      What is new in pediatric cancer

      If you are looking for childhood cancer treatment, we can assist you. Our advanced artificial intelligence (AI) platform will recommend options for treatment of pediatric cancers through oncology and hematology clinical trials tailored to your loved one’s condition. Once you submit the patient’s information, our pediatric oncology and hematology experts will review the case and contact you.


      Why clinical trials?

      Precision Medicine: Tailored treatments, like the ones offered in clinical trials, are based on the genetic footprint of tumors. Identifying specific genetic mutations allows for targeted therapies, potentially reducing side effects and improving outcomes.

      Reducing Side Effects: Efforts are ongoing to minimize the long-term side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Researchers are exploring novel therapies with fewer adverse effects on growing bodies in order to avoid regular chemotherapy.

      Collaborative Research: Collaborations among institutions, researchers, and international consortia have accelerated the development of new treatments and clinical trials.


      How can Massive Bio help kids with

      Massive Bio can provide the following services:

      Clinical Trial Matching: Our service helps identify innovative pediatric cancer treatments that may be more effective or have fewer side effects than standard options. We specialize in matching pediatric cancer patients with suitable clinical trials.

      Access to Experts: The platform connects families with oncology experts who specialize in pediatric cancers. This access ensures that families receive guidance from specialists who understand the nuances and complexities of treating childhood cancers.

      Navigating Complexities: Managing this disease can be overwhelming. We support families by providing guidance, resources, and information to navigate the complexities of treatment decisions and available options. If your child is suitable for a clinical trial, we can make this process seamless.


      Let’s Learn About Childhood Cancer

      Pediatric cancer refers to cancer that develops in children and adolescents, typically under the age of 18. The most common types of pediatric cancers include:

      Hematologic cancers:

      • Leukemias (cancers of the blood or blood cancers)
      • Lymphomas (lymph nodes cancer)


      Solid Tumors:

      • Brain tumors
      • Neuroblastoma (immature nerve cell cancer)
      • Osteosarcoma (bone cancer)
      • Ewings sarcoma
      • Wilms tumor (kidney cancer), among others.

      Pediatric cancers can differ from adult cancers. They encompass different types that vary their behavior and response to treatment. Research shows that survival rates for many of these have improved significantly in recent years.


      What is an NGS test? Is it important?

      NGS stands for Next-Generation Sequencing, a DNA sequencing technology. It quickly reads millions of DNA pieces together, giving a full look at a person’s genes. They provide detailed genetic information about the cancer cells, allowing for more personalized and targeted approaches to therapy.

      It can help us identify genetic biomarkers. These are specific genetic mutations within cancer cells that can be targeted and guide treatment decisions. For instance, certain genetic mutations might indicate a better response to a particular therapy or generate the opportunity for creating targeted therapies.

      NGS testing is considered part of the standard of care of most cancer types. Discuss this with your child’s oncologist to maximize their possibilities to participate in a clinical trial of interest.


      Did you know about ALK-positive solid tumors in

      Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) fusion-positive solid tumors can happen in specific types of cancers. The most recognized ALK positive tumors in pediatric patients include:

      Rhabdomyosarcoma: Rhabdomyosarcoma is a type of cancer that primarily affects children. It develops from soft tissues, particularly the muscles, and can occur in various parts of the body. This cancer is characterized by the rapid growth of cells that resemble immature muscle cells. Symptoms depend on where the tumor is located, and treatment usually involves a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.

      Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumor (IMT): Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumor (IMT) is a rare tumor that can occur in various parts of the body, most commonly in the lungs, abdomen, or pelvis. It’s often considered benign but can behave like a low-grade cancer. IMT is characterized by a mix of inflammatory cells and myofibroblastic cells – cells that are part muscle and part fibrous tissue. The cause of IMT is not well understood, and it can affect people of any age, though it’s more common in children and young adults. Symptoms vary depending on the tumor’s location, and treatment typically involves surgical removal of the tumor.

      Neuroblastoma: Is a type of tumor that predominantly affects children and arises from cells of the nervous system. Neuroblastoma primarily affects the adrenal glands but may occur in the abdominal, thoracic, cervical, and pelvic sympathetic ganglia. Its clinical behavior is variable, ranging from spontaneous regression to aggressive metastatic disease.

      Glial Tumors (Low and high grade): Are a diverse group of tumors that arise from cells in the nervous system and usually occur in children and young adults. Experts categorize these tumors broadly into low-grade and high-grade based on their aggressiveness.


      About treatment for pediatric tumors: standard
      vs. novel therapies

      The standard treatments typically include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy, and sometimes stem cell transplants. They aim to eliminate cancer while considering the child’s well-being. Emerging therapies such as immunotherapy and targeted therapies are the forefront of pediatric cancer research.

      Clinical trials offer hope for better treatments, improved outcomes, and the advancement of medical knowledge. They provide a pathway to potentially more effective and tailored therapies for children fighting cancer.

      What Are Clinical Trials?

      Cancer is an unfortunate reality that touches most of us at some point in our lives. If you or a loved one has cancer, you may have heard or read that clinical trials could offer access to innovative new treatments. But what exactly is a clinical trial? In this video, Massive Bio co-founder Arturo Loaiza-Bonilla, MD, explains how clinical trials work, what to expect if you enroll in one, and why a clinical trial can be an important treatment option for many cancer patients.


      We dream of the day when cancer disappears from our lives. Massive Bio is working tirelessly on achieving that goal.
