Participate to the progress on cancer in persons with intellectual disability

Cancers developed by persons with intellectual disability are poorly understood and
different from those in the general population. For psychological and biological reasons, the treatment of these cancers is more difficult.

ONCODEFI , the meeting place of two previously distinct medical fields , namely cancer and intellectual disability, is an original project, the first one ever to have been launched in France or    Internationally.

It covers 7,000 new patients each year in France, 35,000 new patients in the USA and over 800,000 in the world.
