Children's Cancer Foundation Hong Kong
Funded: 01-01-2016 through 12-31-2016
Funding Type: Beneficiary Outside the U.S.
Institution Location: Hong Kong,
Institution: Children's Cancer Foundation

Through this partnership with the Children's Cancer Foundation, proceeds from St. Baldrick's head-shaving events in Hong Kong support life-saving childhood cancer research in Hong Kong. This grant has funded four projects. The first project is an extension of a previous grant. It aims to accurately measure treatment response by identifying and counting residual leukemia cells in patients following treatment to avoid under-or over-treatment of the disease in the future. The second project explores cardiac diseases and diseases of the circulatory system, these remain to be important causes of cumulative mortality in the long-term for child cancer patients after cancer therapy. These studies based on multi-modality evaluation of cardiac function, will give long-term monitoring and assessment of treatment-related cardiotoxicity in pediatric cancer survivors. The third project is a study to improve the cure rate of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The research also includes studying any impact of special genetic changes on the treatment outcome. The fourth project aims at investigating the prevalence of sexual and reproductive problems caused by childhood cancer treatment amongst local childhood cancer survivors by conducting questionnaires to assess various aspects, including sexual function, self-esteem and general well-being of a group of patients.

Children's Cancer Foundation Hong Kong
Funded: 01-01-2015 through 12-31-2015
Funding Type: Beneficiary Outside the U.S.
Institution Location: Hong Kong,
Institution: Children's Cancer Foundation

Through this partnership with the Children's Cancer Foundation, proceeds from St. Baldrick's head-shaving events in Hong Kong support life-saving childhood cancer research in Hong Kong. This grant has funded four projects. The first project is an extension of a previous grant. It aims to accurately measure treatment response by identifying and counting residual leukemia cells in patients following treatment, as a result to avoid under-or over-treatment in the future. The second project explored palliative care needs. Palliative care plays an important role in improving symptom control and psychosocial care for pediatric cancer patients and their families. However, there are no international guidelines specifically made for pediatric palliative care (PPC), with the exception of pain management. A local study is thus needed to explore how PPC can be improved and to identify the essential skills, facilities and services needed in the provision of such care in Hong Kong hospitals and community settings. The third project is a study of a large inter-group randomized trial on whether rituximab (antibody) can add benefit to the current chemotherapy regimen for children and adolescents with high risk B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The fourth project explored cardiac toxicity. Cardiac toxicity is one of the most concerning side effects of anti-cancer therapy. The gain in life expectancy obtained with anti-cancer therapy can be compromised by increased morbidity and mortality associated with its cardiac complications. The field of ‘pediatric cardo-oncology’ has emerged as an essential discipline to provide cardiac specialist care to pediatric cancer patients. In this project multi-modality evaluation on cardiac function is used to monitor the cardiac function of children after cancer therapy.
