Challenge

Research against childhood cancer is a real need that requires funding and research projects.

Solution

This international study aims to provide valuable information and develop practical guidelines for medical teams regarding the nutritional status of children and adolescents in southern European countries, specifically those diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and certain types of brain tumors. EPICkids involves collaboration with renowned research institutions such as Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Long-Term Impact

The research project aims to gather objective data and analyze critical nutritional parameters to understand the impact of the Mediterranean Diet on pediatric cancer patients. By examining the relationship between diet and cancer treatment outcomes, EPICkids intends to provide medical teams with evidence-based guidance and resources to better manage the nutritional needs of young patients. Ultimately, this research has the potential to improve the overall well-being, treatment effectiveness.
