Number of meta-analyses: 2

Project Description:

Márk is a newly-graduated medical student and his main interest is in pediatric oncology and hematology. He is currently working on a systematic review and meta-analysis regarding the comparison of social and economical outcomes between former childhood cancer patients and the general population. With the developments of the last decades, 8 out of 10 pediatric oncology patients can be cured. Therefore, in recent times, the greater focus turns on the real success of therapy, which is successful reintegration into society. His second project will be a network meta-analysis about the comparison of the effectiveness of different therapeutical approaches in the treatment of neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is the most common cancer in infants and extracranial solid tumor in children. There are several therapeutical approaches to improve survival (especially in high-risk groups), but there is lacking information about which therapy is superior compared to the others.
