Recommended Conferences for Childhood Cancer

Childhood Cancer

As per available reports about 20 Relevant Journals, 25 Conferences are presently dedicated exclusively to Childhood Cancer and about 2,070 articles are being published on Childhood Cancer.

Childhood cancer (also known as pediatric cancer) is cancer in a child. The term “childhood cancer” is a problem, because it actually means cancers that strike infants, children, teens and young adults.

OMICS InternationalOrganizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.

Scope and Importance:
Childhood cancers are not related to lifestyle factors and little can be done to prevent them. Some cancers almost never strike after the age of 5; others occur most often in teenagers. Even when kids get cancers that adults get—like lymphoma—they must be treated differently. Children are not simply smaller adults. Many adult cancers can be diagnosed early. In 80% of kids, cancer has already spread to other areas of the body by the time it is diagnosed. There are over a dozen types of childhood cancers, and countless subtypes, making it more challenging for researchers to find cures for every kid. For many years, researchers struggled to give kids just a few more months of life. While many kids now survive, the search goes on for cures for many childhood cancers. But even for kids who survive, the battle is not over. A recent study shows that because of the treatments they had as kids, by the time they’re 45, more than 95% of survivors will have a chronic health problem and 80% will have severe or life-threatening conditions. So in addition to finding cures, a lot of research is focused on preventing the lifelong damage that results from surgeries, radiation and chemotherapies given while young bodies and brains are just developing. Even during treatment kids face all kinds of side effects, some very uncomfortable, others life-threatening.

Market Analysis:
It is being acknowledged that between 2006 and 2010, there were 4,600 new cases of cancer in children 0–14 years of age, an average of 920 cases per year. Between 2007 and 2011, there were 583 cancer deaths in children 0–14 years of age, an average of 117 deaths per year. 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. 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. 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.
