Date:10/11/2011

rst was identified there in 1958 by Sir Denis Burkitt. The first use of combination chemotherapy in the world was used to treat Burkitt lymphoma and initiated by Uganda Cancer Institute physicians in conjunction with the National Cancer Institute at the U.S. National Institutes of Health. This approach is now the most widely utilized therapy for cancer.

Each year in Uganda, 600 new Burkitt cases present for medical attention and the average age at diagnosis is 5. Currently, the five-year survival rate is less than 40 percent, but it is estimated that 85 percent of these children could be cured for less than $600 a case.

When completed, the Uganda Cancer Institute/Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Clinic and Training Institute will be an incubator of research that will dramatically alter the course of cancer diagnosis, treatment and care. The building will serve as a state-of-the-art venue for gathering data and conducting studies to further the prevention and treatment of cancer-related infectious diseases, with far-reaching implications for global health.

Boosting patient access to diagnostic technology and significantly increasing the number of patients who can be treated, the new facility will enhance integration of HIV treatment into cancer care and enable Hutchinson Center experts to devise a model of effective cancer care that could be deployed in other resource-limited areas.

To date, the Hutchinson Center has trained more than 100 individuals in both the United States and Uganda. Of the more than 70 Ugandan trainees, interns and fellows, 15 have traveled to Seattle to study at the Hutchinson Center. Twelve of the 25 Americans have trained in Uganda. The program offers training in a variety of disciplines hematology, oncology, epidemiology, global health and HIV-associated malignancies, among others. Trainees include postgraduate and postdoctorate fellows, laboratory technicians, medical officers, study nurses and admin
