Background and funding

Cancer and its treatment during childhood and adolescence can result in a variety of late health effects in adult life. On the basis of funding resources received from the Danish Strategic Research Council a large inter-Nordic childhood cancer survivor study has now been established.

Research areas

In the initial phase of this research initiative priority is given to late effects in terms of :

Cardiovascular and pulmonary disorders

Endocrine disorders

Renal and gastrointestinal disorders

Diabetes Mellitus


The ultimate goals are to allow for better planning of treatment protocols for childhood cancer patients, with fewer late effects, to contribute to preventive intervention strategies, and to improve the basis for patient counselling.
