A Guide To Childhood Cancer Clinical Trials
This actionable childhood cancer guide lays out the considerations when managing your diagnosis to help you with the process and to make sure no step is missed along the way.
- Childhood cancers can occur in children from birth to 15 years old. These cancers are rare and may differ from adult cancers in growth, spread, and treatments.
- Depending on the cancer type, common treatment options include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, immunotherapy, and stem cell transplant.
- The most common childhood cancer types are leukemia, brain tumors, and lymphoma.
- An increase in awareness and research efforts led to a 65% decrease in mortality rate of pediatric cancer patients from 1970 to 2016.
Trials Can Help
There are currently over 130 active childhood cancer clinical trials taking place in the United States. Participating in a clinical trial not only progresses much-needed research, but also gives patients access to these new innovative therapies years before the general population.
The new treatments investigated in today’s cancer clinical trials are:
- Targeted therapies for new biomarkers
- Immunotherapy using new monoclonal antibodies
- Combinations of chemotherapies with other drugs
- New methods of surgery
