  • Effect of Chemotherapy on Surgical Resection of Liver Tumors
  • A study of pediatric patients with hepatoblastoma led by researchers at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) suggests an opportunity to reduce chemotherapy in up to 65 percent of patients, which could lead to a decrease in the incidence of adverse effects. Their findings were published online this week in the British Journal of Surgery.


  • Obese Youths with Leukemia More Likely to Have Persistent Disease
  • Obese youths with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) are known to have worse outcomes than their lean counterparts. To find out why, investigators at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles studied patients who were obese at the time of their diagnosis with ALL to determine if body mass index (BMI) impacted response to initial chemotherapy.
