Cancer & Blood Disorders

Active Clinical Trials

The Peckham Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders offers clinical trials on promising new treatments for children newly diagnosed with cancer or blood disorders or with recurrent tumors. We also offer studies investigating cancer biology, supportive care and late effects of treatment for children, adolescents and young adults.

Clinical trials for newly diagnosed patients or those with recurrent tumors are offered through our participation in the Children’s Oncology Group, our affiliation with St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and our participation in the Neuroblastoma and Medulloblastoma Translational Research Consortium. We also offer studies sponsored by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as registry (observational) studies for patients with certain blood disorders, such as sickle cell anemia, hemophilia and thalassemia.

Before enrolling your child in a research study, you may want to talk to his or her physician about potential benefits and possible risks.
