Know the Glow - A Deeper Dive into Retinoblastoma

Mar 14, 2022, 16:00 PM by Srustie Patel, Talia Amir, Alexandro Chu, Keny Patel, and Helly Shah
This video discusses Retinoblastoma, its underlying causes, as well as current treatment options and research on new treatments.

Retinoblastoma is a rare type of eye cancer and occurs most often in children under the age of 5. It accounts for approximately 2% of all cancers that occur in children between the age of 0 -14 years of age. Some commonly used procedures to diagnose retinoblastoma include: eye exams, eye ultrasounds, and magnetic resonance imaging.

The underlying cause of retinoblastoma are mutations in the retinoblastoma gene, resulting in the production of a mutated retinoblastoma protein. The protein’s ability to control cell division is negatively impacted, ultimately leading to the formation of tumours as seen in retinoblastoma.

Current treatment options for retinoblastoma include: cryosurgery, thermotherapy, laser surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and enucleation. In addition to current treatments, researchers continue to investigate new and innovative methods for treating retinoblastoma.

Pregnancy

The process by which a female produces an offspring in their womb once the male and female zygotes have combined into a single embryo until birth.

Embryo

The offspring in the womb, from the moment 2 zygotes co-exist up until the 11th week of pregnancy, is medically referred to as "Embryo"

Fetus

The offspring in the womb, beginning on the 11th week of pregnancy, has graduated from "Embryo" to "Fetus"

Newborn
