Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate the safety and effectiveness of new therapies and diagnostic tools, including chemotherapy drugs, bone marrow transplantation techniques, and imaging technologies. Other types of clinical studies may help doctors compare the effectiveness of additional aspects of your child’s care, or determine the causes of a particular disease.
If your child is eligible to participate in a clinical trial, he or she may have access to new therapies that are not yet available elsewhere. Our clinical research team is highly experienced in selecting children who are mostly likely to benefit from a particular investigational therapy. They can guide you through the process of selecting the most appropriate clinical trial for your needs.
