Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) is a potentially fatal disease characterized by inflammatory tumors. Recently, researchers discovered that LCH arises from immature immune cells in the blood and is in fact a form of cancer. It is not known why some children develop extensive life-threatening disease, others may have limited tumors, and some develop progressive brain deterioration. In this study, Dr. Allen is investigating the role of inherited genes, acquired gene mutations, and the origin of tumor cells to define the causes of LCH. The ultimate goal is to develop personalized approach to determine the safest, most effective therapy for each child.

Cancer treatment outcomes in patients between ages 13-39 years (adolescent and young adults - AYA) have been quite dismal. Clinical trials are cancer treatment options which potentially offers newer drugs in the hopes to cure cancer. One of the reasons for poor outcomes is limited participation of AYA cancer patients in clinical trials. This grant supports a Clinical Research Coordinator to ensure that more adolescent and young adults can be treated on clinical trials, often their best hope for a cure.
