Research and Journals

There are ongoing research studies related to the cause and treatments of childhood cancers. You can have access to this current information and scientific research via the Internet. The National Library of Medicine provides a free search of medical literature through several online search engines that make it is easy to find disease-specific information. Some individual journals have recent articles in complete form but usually an abstract will summarize the findings. Remember that some of these are small focused studies that report results related to limited patient groups.
