Childhood CancersStreaming Video - 2008
Just a generation ago, pediatric cancers were almost always fatal. But today, 80 percent of childhood cancers are cured-young patients are disease-free and go on to live a normal life span. This program explores how doctors and researchers achieved this milestone, considered one of the greatest success stories in modern medicine. Also, scientists detail how research into pediatric cancer helped oncologists to develop effective anticancer regimens for adults. Interviewees include Dr. Eugenie Kleinerman of the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, Dr. Elliot Vichinsky of Oakland Children's Hospital, and Dr. Stacy Berg of Baylor College of Medicine.
