Adolescents with cancer face unique medical and psychosocial challenges and it is important for their doctors to understand the psychological manifestations of cancer diagnosis and treatment in this age group. Using patient dialogues, we describe how simultaneous participation of physicians and patients could help to give voice to patient needs, in particular concerning communication.

This brief report describes the SARS-CoV-2 vaccination program at our pediatric oncology unit. Adopting Italian regulations, patients treated for cancer within the previous 6 months were offered vaccination with the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine if aged ≥16 years, and with the Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna vaccine if aged ≥18 years. From March 24 to April 28, 2021, 80/89 adolescent and young adult patients enrolled were vaccinated, while nine refused the vaccine due to fear of side effects, disbelief reg...

PROCEDURE The survival of children with rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) has gradually improved as a result of the adoption of multidisciplinary treatments. Dedicated skills and facilities are indispensable and more readily available at reference centers. In this study, we examined the role of centers' experience (based on the number of patients treated) in their management of patients with RMS. METHODS We analyzed 342 patients with localized RMS enrolled in the European RMS 2005 protocol from October 200...
This commentary describes the unusual self-portrait contributed by a 26-year-old receiving treatment for relapsing medulloblastoma to a photography project undertaken by a group of patients as part of the Youth Project, a scheme dedicated to young cancer patients with the dual aim of optimizing medical aspects of their care and promoting a holistic approach to their needs. The article briefly describes how creative projects can play an important part in giving young people with cancer new ways t...

It is challenging for conventional top-down lithography to fabricate reproducible devices very close to atomic dimensions, whereas identical molecules and very similar nanoparticles can be made bottom-up in large quantities, and can be self-assembled on surfaces. The challenge is to fabricate electrical contacts to many such small objects at the same time, so that nanocrystals and molecules can be incorporated into conventional integrated circuits. Here, we report a scalable method for contactin...

ABSTRACT null null Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare mesenchymal tumor of intermediate malignant potential that predominantly affects children, adolescents and young adults. IMT has a predilection for the lung, abdomen, pelvis, and retroperitoneum, however, can affect any part of the body. IMT is typically localized, and multifocal or metastatic disease is uncommon. Complete surgical resection is the treatment of choice when feasible. There is no established standard of care for...

Abstract Background/objectives The primary aim of this study was to analyse and evaluate the impact of different local treatments on the pattern of relapse in children with primary head and neck non-parameningeal (HNnPM) rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), treated in the European paediatric Soft tissue sarcoma Study Group (EpSSG) RMS2005 study. The secondary aim was to assess whether current risk stratification is valid for this specific site. Design/methods This study includes all patients with localised H...

Summary null Background null A standardised approach to treatment of paediatric non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas (NRSTS), which account for about 4% of childhood cancers, is still lacking. We report the results of the NRSTS 2005 protocol developed specifically by the European Pediatric Soft Tissue Sarcoma Study Group (EpSSG) to determine a risk-adapted multimodal standard of care for this group of tumours. null Methods null The EpSSG NRSTS 2005 study included two prospective, non-random...

It has become increasingly clear in recent years that we need to develop ad hoc strategies to combat very rare tumors (VRT) of pediatric age. In 2008, several schemes being run in different countries were pooled together to create the European Cooperative Study Group for Pediatric Rare Tumors (EXPeRT) project: a cooperative study group that aimed to promote research in the relatively uncharted territory of rare tumors of pediatric age. EXPeRT members were able to activate different levels of coo...
