Will St. Jude use experimental treatments on my child?

All patients at St. Jude are treated on research trials. All trials are carefully regulated by institutional and federal agencies. Your child’s transplant physician will discuss the clinical trial in detail with you and your child. Once your child is enrolled on a research study, a clinical research nurse will be assigned to observe your child as he or she progresses on the protocol. St. Jude has a long history of clinical research, which has been crucial to the development of treatment advances during the past 40 years.
