This past year, we have supported research looking at novel drugs, drug targets, pathways and markers for tumors which we hope could lead to promising new treatments. We are supporting some work directed at improving the uptake of MiBG, which is an important radiation therapy. We have initiated work in genetics including genome wide and exome sequencing and resequencing which we believe could be promising. Finally, we continue to support animal work both in the US and France trying to create SDHB mice models that can help us predict the activity of various chemotherapeutic regimens.
All of this work is helping scientists learn more about this disease and will help the Alliance work with healthcare professionals on finding an appropriate treatment.
