Ground-breaking child-cancer trial kicks off in New Zealand

A ground-breaking trial exploring new treatments for child cancer is launching in New Zealand today, giving high hopes to families like that of 12 year-old Fynn Abbott who was diagnosed with a hard-to-detect type of cancer at the age of seven after several months of misdiagnosis.

Every week about three New Zealand children under 15 are diagnosed with cancer. Less than three years after being diagnosed, more than 20 per cent die.

This trial, named the Precision Paediatric Cancer Project (PPCP), aims to reduce those numbers.
