Clinical trials have formed the foundation of virtually every advance made in cancer care. Trials can offer hope when standard therapies are no longer effective. MSK Kids offers a range of clinical trials assessing investigational approaches for children with leukemia. We have trials for cancer that has continued growing or has come back after treatment. These include studies assessing immunotherapies. These treatments boost the power of the immune system to find and kill cancer cells. We also study new drugs and stem cell transplantation techniques.
Your child’s care team will let you know if your child can participate in a clinical trial. The decision to enroll is entirely voluntary. The study team will explain the benefits and risks of the study to you so you can make an informed decision.
