New combinations of drugs bring hope.

The video of Dr. Reynolds presentation, "Drugs in the Pipeline for Neuroblastoma" is available here:

The video provides some interesting information on several drugs that are becoming avaialble.  Unfortunately, one of the most promising combinations of drugs, Fenretinide and ABT-751, is still not available.  Although the trial has been written for over two years, Abbott still refuses to provide the drug for this study. I know of several parents who have offered to pay for the drug for the trial outright to no avail.  Regardless, it is thought by many to be some of the most promising research seen to date.  It is a very enlightening video.

With hope,
