Archives of Diseases in Childhood, 05/14/2012
Mostert S et al. – These study provides an overview of childhood cancer patients presenting for treatment in Western Kenya. The distribution of malignancies is similar to findings from other equatorial African countries but differs markedly from studies in high–income countries. The new comprehensive cancer registration system will be continued and extended to serve as the basis for an evidence–based oncology program. Eventually this may lead to improved clinical outcomes.
