  • Overview

    Survival rates for retinoblastoma now approach 100 percent, but in years past, enucleation was the only sure way to cure this rare pediatric malignancy. We're now seeing advances in chemotherapy that not only spare the child's eye, but can preserve vision as well. What makes this chemotherapy regimen so effective, and how can we build on its effectiveness to enhance the vision and the livelihood of children affected by retinoblastoma? Dr. David Abramson, chief of the ophthalmic oncology service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, joins host Dr. Jennifer Shu to talk about the breadth of retinoblastoma research that has helped us take important strides toward remediation of this disease.
