As a founding funder of 'Zero Childhood Cancer', CTx is very pleased to see that the initial results of its national clinical trial, released today, reveal promising outcomes within its first 11 months

Of the 129 children enrolled in the trial from across Australia with high-risk and relapsed cancers, 67% were provided with personalised treatment plans aimed at killing their unique cancer cells.
