Childhood cancer is rare, yet there are still 15,000 new cases diagnosed in children aged 19 and younger in the U.S. each year. While many types of cancers can appear in people of all ages, we know that kids are not just little adults and treatment often needs to be different. Pediatric clinical trials allow for the development of medicines with the unique needs of children in mind and have helped drive great strides against childhood cancer. Yet, there is still much more to learn and new advancements to be made.
