There is Hope

“At the most recent International Symposium of Paediatric Neuro-Oncology (at which PNET foundation was a silver sponsor), Dr. Marcel Kool revealed his exciting work investigating supratentorial PNETs. This work has revealed a diverse biologic group that encompasses at least three unique subgroups, tentatively labelled PNET1, 2 and 3. We anxiously await the published manuscript. This has lead to the formation of an international working group that seeks to determine the clinical characteristics of each of these groups and eventually, how best to treat the unique subgroups and improve the outcomes for all children with sPNET. Australian investigators included in this working group are Dr. Jordan R. Hansford of the Royal Children’s Hospital and Dr. Nick Gottardo of Princess Margaret Hospital in Perth who have been exploring the clinical characteristics and therapeutics of paediatric sPNET.”
