Innovative Therapies for Children with Cancer
A consortium of European researchers, created in 2003, the ITTC groups 42 European research institutions in paediatric oncology, and 9 European research labs.
The goal of the ITCC is to develop innovative therapies, specific to the treatment of cancer in children and adolescents, in cooperation with the regulators, the pharmaceutical industry, the parents and the patients.
The grouping of efforts at the European level enriches the research and allows for a faster development of clinical trials.
ITCC and the association Imagine for Margo have signed a partnership agreement since 2012.
At the forefront of the fight against cancer in Europe, the Institut of Cancerology Gustave Roussy, groups 2,700 in its site, with the mission of curing the people attained by cancer, to put in place innovative therapies, and to spread the knowledge into the medical and scientific communities, French and international.
The IGR takes care the adults and children affected by both rate and frequent cancer, in all stages of the illness, within an institution where medical care, research and teaching are closely linked. The expertise and state-of-the-art medical practices at IGR, make it a reference center in France, as well as in the world.
Kids v Cancer is and American Association against cancer, founded by Nancy Goodman in 2009. Nancy is a co-writer of the Creating Hope Act, passed by the USA in 2012.
Nancy is actively involved in our lobbying for the establishment of a “Creating Hope Act” that would encourage European pharmaceutical companies to develop specifically pediatric medicines.
