Cancer is the second most common reason of death within the pediatric population. However, treatment and research of children’s care is lagging behind adult research. Adults and children share many types of common cancers including, lymphomas, leukemias, sarcomas and brain tumors. Many studies going on now of antigens and vaccines within the immune system for adults would greatly benefit children because children’s immune systems are very adaptable. These treatments may be more effective for children that adults.
