Potential treatment option for children with Ewing’s sarcoma

6 julio 2015

A new therapeutic alternative for children who suffer from a malignant pediatric tumor bone and soft tissue called Ewing’s sarcoma has been discovered by a research consortium. Ewing’s sarcoma is the second most common bone cancer and affects children and youth. Currently, if diagnosed early and there is no metastasis it can be cured in 80% of cases but between 25% and 30% of cases are diagnosed when it has metastasized and survival drops to 20%.
