Proposed Legislation Takes Aim at Childhood Cancers

JAMA. 2015;314(14):1439. doi:10.1001/jama.2015.12653

Rep Michael McCaul (R, Tex), with the support of 29 bipartisan bill co-sponsors, has introduced a bill—the Childhood Cancer Survivorship, Treatment, Access, and Research Act of 2015 (or Childhood Cancer STAR Act)—that would facilitate research for childhood cancers, expedite discovery and availability of new treatments, better document childhood cancer incidence, and improve quality of life for childhood cancer survivors (http://1.usa.gov/1Ul4tvW).
