MICCHADO – Molecular and Immunological Characterisation of High risk Childhood Cancer at Diagnosis 




The MICCHADO project of the SFCE aims at enabling a complete molecular analysis and an immunologic evaluation upon diagnosis, for 600 children and teenagers with high risk cancer, thanks to advanced technologies, including high speed sequencing. Changes of these profiles during the treatment and the follow-up might be searched for thanks to blood sampling (search for the tumor circulating DNA). This project shall enable a better understanding of mechanisms of failure and resistance to first-rank treatments. In cooperation with other current projects, the results of these precise analyses shall enable to orientate much faster onto therapeutic strategies.
