At this time, 224 pediatric patients have been tested for TP53 mutations at MDACC, and 34 have tested positive for LFS. There are currently ~20 patients receiving care in the MDACC pediatrics LEAD clinic. Of those 18, five patients have received treatment for at least one malignancy. Once a patient turns 21, they transition to our adult LEAD clinic, as they focus on additional malignancies that affect the adult population.
