Transition is mainly non-fluent, one-time procedure. The process does not prepare survivors to take the responsibility for their future life. Improving the methods of survivors medical care by organization of multidisciplinary clinics for adolescents and young adults and systematic, frequent education might ameliorate the quality of follow-up and improve the quality of life.

AbstractMelatonin is an indole produced by the pineal gland at night under normal light or dark conditions, and its levels, which are higher in children than in adults, begin to decrease prior to the onset of puberty and continue to decline thereafter. Apart from circadian regulatory actions, melatonin has significant apoptotic, angiogenic, oncostatic, and antiproliferative effects on various cancer cells. Particularly, the ability of melatonin to inhibit skeletomuscular sarcoma, which most commonly affects children, teenagers, and young adults, is substantial. In the past few decades, the vast majority of references have ...

Serum AMH is an excellent biomarker of ovarian reserve (1,2). The assessment of AMH pre- and post gonadotoxic treatment helps define reproductive potential in young adults facing cancer treatment. Normative childhood and adolescent AMH levels are not well defined despite the potential for high clinical utility (3). Most studies have been limited by sample size, varying and less sensitive manual assays, and with some conflicting trends (4-12). Our objective is to establish accurate reference intervals (RIs) for AMH in the pediatric population that can be used to assess AMH in pediatric/adolescent survivors.
