Childhood Cancer Epidemiology Group

Childhood Cancer Research Unit, Stockholm


The Childhood Cancer Epidemiology Group (CCEG) is a research group in the Department of Women's and Children's Health at the Karolinska Institutet. The CCEG administrates and maintains registries that contain data from children with cancer on assignment from research bodies. These organisations and working groups are at national, Nordic and international level and are close and important research partners of the CCEG.

On a national level the CCEG work closely together with the working groups:

  • SBLG (Swedish Childhood Leukaemia Group)
  • VSTB (Treatment planning group for children with solid tumors)
  • VCTB (Treatment planning group for children with CNS-tumors)
  • SvBRG (Swedish Paediatric Radiotherapists)
  • SALUB (Swedish working group for late effects in children after cancer)

On a Nordic level CCEG cooperates with the Nordic Society of Paediatric Haematology and Oncology (NOPHO). The NOPHO secretariat is seated in Stockholm.

At an international level there is SIOP (Société Internationale d'Oncologie Pédiatrique or International Society of Paediatric Oncology), the major global organisation concerned with the issues of children and young people who have cancer.
