  • $62,500 - 131I-MIBG Imaging and Therapy for Neuroblastoma

    Kate Matthay, M.D. - University of California San Francisco

    Research to use a new tumor-targeted therapy for neuroblastoma—131I-MIBG which can deliver radioactivity directly to the tumors. This method is more effective and less toxic than current methods which do not deliver directly to the tumors.
  • $100,000 for Discovery of Inhibitors of MLL Fusion Proteins as Targeted Therapies for Pediatric Acute Leukemia

    Alfred I DuPont Hospital for Children; Andrew Napper, PhD

    Research of selective killing of leukemia cells with MLL fusions with a cell-penetrating AF4 peptide; study extended to leukemia engrafted in mice.

  • $40,000 for Targeted Polymeric Parthenolide Carriers to Treat Childhood AML

    Danielle Benoit, PhD - University of Rochester

    Research to develop more effective treatments for children with AML by employing a polymer delivery system that would increase the solubility of parthenolide (PTL). This would allow it to be used for leukemia therapy, as it is only soluble at around 1 mg/ml in aqueous solutions. Polymer nanoparticles used for loading a leukemia therapeutic have been successfully created and thoroughly analyzed in vitro for their potential as therapeutically relevant drug carriers in mice.
