Dr Samarasinghe’s major interest is in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) which is the most common cancer in children. The UK ALL group, of which Dr Samarasinghe is part of, has been conducting clinical trials in childhood ALL for over 50 years, with a focus on improving survival while minimizing toxicity. Today long-term event-free survival rates are nearly 90%, but despite this improved outcome, therapy remains nonspecific and toxic. 
 
The group continue to pursue the development of targeted therapies that are less toxic.  They recently published a world first; successfully administering CAR T-cells from an adult donor into a child with relapsed ALL. Dr Samarasinghe is a co-investigator on two novel CAR T-cell immunotherapy studies and is leading on taking this to front line therapy in the next ALL trial.   

The UK ALL group have also published novel methods of assessing remission in childhood leukaemia. This will enable us to target therapy more effectively and thus reduce side effects.   

The UK ALL group has also helped develop better transplant regimens for Aplastic Anaemia in particular from unrelated donors. This has led to better outcomes following transplantation with aplastic anaemia.
