Leveraging Transcriptional Control to Find New Targeted Drugs for Pediatric Cancers - Enduring

New research techniques have been applied to studying pediatric cancers, allowing a deeper understanding of their biology and the associated therapeutic implications. As science progresses, it is imperative to stay updated in order to close the gap between current and ideal practice.

Pediatric cancers are often genomically quiet, so relying on sequencing to find "druggable" targets has not yet led to breakthroughs in many pediatric cancers. Understanding the impact of chromatin modifications on pediatric cancer gene expression is an emerging field. This activity will update the audience on how knowledge of the transcriptional landscape may have translational benefit for pediatric cancers, including leukemia.

Target Audience

Pediatric hematology/oncology physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, clinical research, and social workers. 

Learning Objectives

  • Define a super-enhancer and the expected effect on the transcription of the gene it controls.
  • Describe the relevance of retinoid signaling in non-APL pediatric AML.
  • State the response rates of EZH2 inhibitors in children and young adults with rhabdoid tumors and what future trials will be studying.
