Over 700 children with high risk and rare cancers have been enrolled across Australia since the Zero Childhood Cancer clinical trial commenced in 2017. By the end of 2023, our aim is that all children diagnosed with cancer in Australia have access to ZERO.
Involving all paediatric oncology units across Australia, as well as 23 national and international research partners, Zero Childhood Cancer is the strongest possible combination of medicine, technology, research and dedicated people. It is giving hope to children with the most aggressive cancers who have little or no treatment options.
