Pleuropulmonary Blastoma Research at Children's National Medical Center
111 Michigan Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20010
The Peuropulmonary Blastoma (PPB) Research at Children's National Medical Center, in collaboration with the International PPB Registry (http://www.ppbregistry.org), the Washington University in St. Louis and over 60 families affected by PPB, is working to uncover how and why PPB begins. They welcome further participation from family members of children with PPB or PPB survivors who are not yet in the study. Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is a malignant tumor of the lung that affects young children. Most children with PPB develop their tumors in the first five years of life. The majority of children with the earliest form of the disease (Type I PPB) are curable with surgery and possibly chemotherapy. Children with the later forms (Type II or III PPB) have a much more difficult course.
