Overview

My interests are in clinical research in pediatric oncology. I am interested specific oncologic diseases (renal tumours, histiocytic disorders) as well as supportive care issues in pediatric oncology patients. I am also interested in the psychosocial impact on patients and families within this population.

Steroid-induced osteoporosis in the pediatric population - Canadian incidence study (STOPP-CIS)
There is a growing list of pediatric osteoporotic conditions associated with chronic disease, and studies suggest that glucocorticoids play a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of osteoporosis secondary to childhood illness. Despite the disadvantages on skeletal metabolism, these drugs are uniformly a part of Canadian treatment protocols for children with leukaemia and nephritic syndrome. While a number of studies attest to the devastating effects of glucocorticoids on the bone health of children, there are few that document the natural history of skeletal morbidity in pediatric steroid-induced osteoporosis (SO).

Predicting risk of infection in Canadian children receiving chemotherapy for AML
Invasive infection is the primary cause of death for approximately 7-10% of children with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). There is great variability in the rate and outcome of infection, even among children receiving identical chemotherapy. Despite the importance of infection, infectious outcomes for children with AML have been poorly described and there is little ability to predict which child with AML will develop life-threatening invasive infection. This study may afford us the ability to predict those at highest risk, as any intervention targeted at decreasing infection will likely be associated with considerable toxicity, adverse outcomes or costs.

Langherans cell histiocytosis III
Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disease that is characterized by the accumulation and proliferation of abnormal bone marrow-derived Langerhans cells. These cells form infiltrates that may be found in various organs and to different extents. The course of disease is unpredictable, varying from spontaneous regression and resolution to rapid progression and death or repeated recurrence with the risk of permanent consequences. Multiple organ involvement, which is particularly frequent in young children under 2 years, carries the risk of a poor outcome. Current studies build on previous experience to further advance treatment regimens.
