Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey

Although cure rates for children with cancer are increasing, cancer treatments can cause permanent deterioration of brain functions leading to impairments in attention, concentration, memory and learning. With the aid of a $3.4 million NIH grant, a Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey investigator and others are exploring an approach that would detect these changes among children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia early during treatment. The goal is to identify a subset of patients who would benefit from a behavioral intervention or treatment clinical trial.
