Track 2: Pediatric Haematology Oncology

Pediatric hematology is the branch of pediatrics dealing with study, diagnosis, treatment and prevention different types of blood disorders including the study of bleeding and clotting disorders in children. The study of Tumor Cell Biology reviews applications concerned with signal transduction mechanisms in neoplastic cells, and regulation of tumor cell phenotype and behavior, and tumor progression. It important to study causes, risk factors and the hypothesis in pediatrics with hematology disorders. A medical practitioner who specializes in this field of pediatric hematology is called pediatric hematologist. It is important that one should be familiar with the educational and preventive measures in order to prevent children being affected with blood disorders.

Track 3: Types of Pediatric Oncology

The most common cancer in children is Leukemia, which are cancers of the bone marrow and blood, are the most common childhood cancers. They account for about 30% of all cancers in children. Brain and central nervous system tumors are the second most common cancers in children, making up about 26% of childhood cancers. Neuroblastoma starts in early forms of nerve cells found in a developing embryo or fetus. About 6% of childhood cancers are neuroblastomas. Wilms tumor starts in one, or rarely, both kidneys. It is most often found in children about 3 to 4 years old. It can show up as a swelling or lump in the belly (abdomen). It accounts for about 5% of childhood cancers. Lymphoma start in certain cells of the immune system called lymphocytes. They most often grow in lymph nodes and other lymph tissues, like the tonsils or thymus. Rhabdomyosarcoma starts in cells that normally develop into skeletal muscles. It makes up about 3% of childhood cancers. Osteosarcoma is most common in teens, and usually develops in areas where the bone is growing quickly, such as near the ends of the long bones in the legs or arms. Ewing sarcoma is a less common type of bone cancer, which can also cause bone pain and swelling. It is most often found in young teens. Germ cell tumors make up about 3% of all childhood cancers. Ninety percent of germ cell tumors are gonadal which are found in the ovaries or testicles and are more common in children and adolescents. Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is a rare childhood cancer occurring in the chest, specifically in the lungs or in the coverings of the lungs called "pleura". Hepatoblastoma is the most common primary liver tumor in children, accounting for just over 1% of pediatric cancers.

Track 4: Pediatric Leukemia

Leukemia is usually described either as "acute", which grows quickly, or "chronic", which grows slowly. One main type of acute leukemia is acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), which accounts for about 3 out of 4 cases of leukemia in children. ALL is a form of leukemia that affects the lymphocytes, a type of white blood cells which fights infection. Another type of acute leukemia is acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). AML is cancer of the blood in which too many myeloblasts, immature white blood cells, are produced in the bone marrow.

Chronic leukemias are more common in adults than in children, and although they tend to grow more slowly than acute leukemias, they are harder to treat. These chronic leukemias are divided into two types: chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). CML is rare in children, but does occur and is treatable in children the same as in adults. CML patients have too many immature white blood cells being produced, and the cells crowd the other healthy blood cells. Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) is a form of leukemia that is neither chronic nor acute and occurs most often in children under the age of four. JMML begins from myeloid cells, but is not as fast-growing as AML or as slow as CML.

Track 5: Pediatric Radiology

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), a type of external beam radiation therapy, is the most commonly used approach for pediatric patients. This computer-guided technology can precisely target cancer cells,  which reduces the radiation delivered to nearby normal tissue and minimizes side effects. X-rays, CT scanning, MRI scanning, ultrasound and other radiological techniques to localise and guide biopsy. Scintigraphy, Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), Positron emission tomography (PET) and other methods of nuclear medicine to identify areas suspicious for malignancy.

Track 6: Pediatric Neuro-Oncology

The management of children with brain and spinal cord tumors is extremely complex. Pediatric brain cancers can be stubborn, and typically do not respond to traditional chemotherapy and radiation. in part because the brain is somewhat protected from medications the blood-brain barrier, in part because surgery in the brain has to be quite refined to minimize injury to brain tissue, and in part because radiation treatment to the brain can cause injury to normal brain tissue.

Track 8: Pediatric Oncology Treatment

Certain disorders (such as ALL or AML) will require immediate admission and chemotherapy, while others will be followed up with regular physical examination and blood tests. Often, surgery is attempted to remove a tumor entirely. This is only feasible when there is some degree of certainty that the tumor can in fact be removed. Surgery is also used for the palliative treatment of some of cancers, e.g. to relieve biliary obstruction, or to relieve the problems associated with some cerebral tumors. The risks of surgery must be weighed against the benefits. A Bone marrow transplant is a medical procedure in which bone marrow that contains cancer is replaced by highly specialized cells, called hematopoietic stem cells, that develop into healthy bone marrow. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are used as a first-line radical therapy in a number of malignancies. They are also used for adjuvant therapy, i.e. when the macroscopic tumor has already been completely removed surgically but there is a reasonable statistical risk that it will recur. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are commonly used for palliation, where disease is clearly incurable. There is currently a rapid expansion in the use of monoclonal antibody treatments, notably for lymphoma (Rituximab), and breast cancer (Trastuzumab). Vaccine and other immunotherapies are the subject of intensive research.

Track 9: Pediatric Oncology Nursing

It can be frightening to hear that a child has cancer or a blood disorder. It is acknowledged that Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor of infancy. It is an embryonal malignancy of the sympathetic nervous system arising from neuroblasts (pluripotent sympathetic cells). Researchers are looking for genetic source of childhood brain tumors. Their main target is Germ cell tumors (GCTs) in children which are masses of tissue formed by the type of immature cells. Germ cell tumors may be malignant, which means cancerous, or they may be benign, which means noncancerous. The common blood disorders in children are leukemia and lymphoma. Leukemia is a disease of the white blood cells. The most common type of pediatric leukemia is acute lymphocytic leukemia. Other types of leukemia that occur less frequently in children are acute myeloid leukemia, and chronic myeloid leukemia. Lymphomas (Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma) are the third most common cancer in children. Based on the characteristics and microscopic appearance of the cancer cell, the pediatric lymphomas are divided into Hodgkin Lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. This Session Includes Pediatric Brain Tumor Models, Neurocutaneous Disorders, Neurofibromatosis, Primitive neuroectodermal tumor, Leukemia, Epigenetics in Pediatric Cancers, Pediatric Neurobiology and  Proton Radiotherapy for Pediatric Brain Tumors.

Market Analysis

2nd International Conference on Pediatric Oncology and Pediatric Medicine will be held during October 05-06, 2017 at Las Vegas, Nevada, USA with the theme “Multidisciplinary program of Pediatric Oncology research and practice”. Pediatric Oncology-2017 mainly focuses on disseminating the knowledge in the field of pediatric oncology and Clinical Pediatrics.

Childhood cancer (also known as pediatric cancer) is cancer in a child. In the United States, an arbitrarily adopted standard of the ages used are 0–14 years inclusive, that is, up to 14 years 11.9 months of age. However, the definition of childhood cancer sometimes includes young adults between 15–19 years old. Pediatric oncology is the branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer in children.

Worldwide, it is estimated that childhood cancer has an incidence of more than 175,000 per year, and a mortality rate of approximately 96,000 per year. In developed countries, childhood cancer has a mortality of approximately 20% of cases. In low resource settings, on the other hand, mortality is approximately 80% , or even 90% in the world's poorest countries. In many developed countries the incidence is slowly increasing, as rates of childhood cancer increased by 0.6% per year between 1975 to 2002 in the United States and by 1.1% per year between 1978 and 1997 in Europe

Importance and scope

The Cancer Research Center is focused on achieving major advances in controlling cancer and producing better outcomes for cancer patients, with the ultimate goal of making cancer a more manageable, and perhaps one day more curable, disease. Since its creation in the fall of 2006, the Cancer Research Center has served as the focal point for an array of activities aimed at translating the revolutionary advances researchers have made in understanding how cancer works at the cellular level into new approaches for preventing, diagnosing, and treating the disease.

Why it’s in Las Vegas, USA??

Cancer among children is a substantial public concern. Each year in the United States, approximately 12,400 children and adolescents younger than 20 years of age are diagnosed with cancer. Approximately 2,300 children and adolescents die of cancer each year, which makes cancer the most common cause of disease-related mortality for children 1-19 years of age. This monograph assembles under one cover the most detailed information available on the incidence of childhood cancer in the United States. These population-based data will be extremely important in furthering our understanding of the variations in childhood cancer by histologic type and primary site and the variations in incidence of these cancers over time. The monograph provides information about childhood cancer incidence and mortality rates that can enhance the level of public discourse, and it can be used in planning research that will help us to better understand these cancers and their causes.

Unlike adult cancers that are usually tabulated by primary site, the childhood cancers are more meaningfully grouped by histologic type and primary site based on the recently developed International Classification of Childhood Cancer (ICCC). The monograph details incidence for 1975-1995 and survival by ICCC group and by patient demographic characteristics. For each of the major ICCC groups, information on known risk factors is also presented. The monograph emphasizes not only ICCC group but also age as important factors in childhood cancer incidence. The cancers discussed include those occurring in children younger than 15 years of age as well as those occurring in adolescents up to age 19 years. Some cancers such as neuroblastoma and hepatoblastoma have highest rates among infants and young children, while others such as Hodgkin’s disease, germ cell tumors (e.g., testicular cancer) and bone cancers have higher rates among adolescents. It is important that different distributions of cancer types by age be considered when research programs are developed to improve outcomes for children and adolescents with cancer.

Market Value on Pediatric Oncology Research

The market’s significant rise through 2019 can be attributed to the industry becoming more familiar with designing and implementing trials in the pediatric population. In addition, the focus on commercially viable targets of high unmet clinical needs such as diseases designated under the Orphan Drug Act (ODA), those for pediatric oncology and the treatment of metabolic disorders. Orphan drug diseases have also provided new opportunities for the industry to target pediatric drugs to treat childhood cancers, metabolic diseases and immune-related diseases.

Pediatric Oncology Medicines: Global Markets presents the changing environment in terms of new legislation and implementation of global pediatric plans. The report analyzes market trends and identifies key therapeutic and geographical challenges and rising opportunities in the developed and developing world. It includes reviews of market revenues from 2013 and forecasts market revenues through 2019.

Market Growth of Pediatric Oncology  Research in the last and upcoming ten years

In the next 5–10 years, new technologies and biomarkers to identify early markers of cardiac disease in children undergoing treatment for ALL will probably be identified or better developed. Trials of new or existing agents to prevent and remediate myocardial damage will begin to mature, providing information for clinicians as they design a new generation of clinical trials to cure disease and minimize toxicity. These technologies will also be applied to identify subclinical disease in survivors of ALL and allow early intervention with new and known cardio-protective medications. Both pharmaceutical and tailored web-based behavioral interventions to remediate contributing chronic conditions among ALL survivors are currently being developed, and early results should be available to inform guidelines for providers of long-term ALL survivor care.

The global pediatric market was valued at $80.7 billion in 2013 and $83.6 billion in 2014. This is expected to reach nearly  $100.7 billion by 2019.

 

Fund Allotment to Pediatric Oncology Research

Since 1980, only three drugs, two used in the treatment of ALL, teniposide (1980) and clofarabine (2004),  and Unituxin (dinutuximab), recently approved in March, 2015 for use in high risk neuroblastoma,  been approved in the first instance for use in children and only four more new drugs have been approved for use by both adults and children. Since 1980, fewer than 10 drugs have been developed for use in children with cancer -including those specifically for children and those for both children and adult compared with hundreds of drugs that have been developed specifically for adults. Equally important, for many of the childhood cancers, the same treatments that existed in the 1970’s continue without change as of 2014.

The average cost of a stay in a hospital for a child with cancer is $40,000 per stay.

On average, pediatric hospitalizations for cancer cost almost five times as much as hospitalizations for other pediatric conditions.

For 2014, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) budget is $4.9 billion. It is anticipated that childhood cancer will receive 4% of that sum or $195 million.

 Prostate cancer (patient average age at diagnosis, 66 years), receives more research funding from NCI than all childhood cancers (patient average age at diagnosis, 6 years).
