For many cancer and blood disorder patients, clinical trials provide new options. Often, clinical trials give children with rare or hard-to-treat conditions access to innovative treatments that may help where traditional options fail.

Clinical trials are patient studies that test new treatments and therapies. A trial may test drugs, a new type of radiation therapy, new ways to do surgery, new combinations of treatments, or other new approaches to cancer and blood disorder care.

The first step is to find out if clinical trials are available for your child’s condition – and if so, what types of trials. To contact us about our clinical trials, use the form to your right. Then talk with your child’s doctors about the full set of treatment options and what you can expect from a clinical trial. If your child participates on a clinical trial, he/she may stop the treatment on the trial at any time and receive standard therapy instead.

About us

Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center provides the combined strengths of two internationally renowned Harvard teaching hospitals. Since the 1940s, when Sidney Farber achieved the first remissions of acute lymphocytic leukemia in children, pioneering physician researchers at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s have been at the forefront of life-saving breakthroughs in the fight against pediatric cancer and blood disorders. A single team of experts delivers care at a Boston campus connected by pedestrian bridges, with inpatients treated at Boston Children's Hospital and outpatients at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
