Researchers from the Children's Oncology Group (COG) have developed a new standardized dosing method for anticancer drugs in infants to use across all COG clinical trials. This unified method, based on dose banding and organized into tables for different drugs and dose levels, will address the limitations and variability that researchers can encounter in current methods.

Every space flight mission requires a carefully planned trajectory, and similarly the national Cancer Moonshot initiative needed a scientific roadmap to reach its ambitions of accelerating the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer to make a decade of progress in the next five years. In September,
Stephen Hunger, MD and a team of researchers used highly sensitive deep sequencing techniques to see how genetic changes in acute lymphoblastic leukemia cells evolve from diagnosis to remission and relapse.
