Research Program Overview
The consequences of the disease and its treatment are studied in survivors of cancer in childhood. A specific focus is on nutritional morbidity during and after therapy while other studies take a broader view by measuring the health-related quality of life in survivors. These investigations are undertaken locally and nationally, as well as in developing countries where the vast majority of children with cancer reside.
- Sarcopenia in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in Hamilton
- Health-related quality of life following megatherapy and autologous stem cell rescue in children with high-risk neuroblastoma in Canada
- Nutritional morbidity in children w
