Non-Therapeutic Protocol

SJLTFU: Protocol for Collecting Data on Childhood Cancer Survivors

Type of Protocol/Clinical Study

Supportive Studies: Long Term Effects

Description

Progress in the treatment of pediatric cancers has resulted in increasing numbers of long-term childhood cancer survivors. Investigators have an opportunity to evaluate the effects of cancer treatments which occur long after completion of these treatments. Cancer treatments may lead to a variety of other medical complications or other cancers. The short term effects for cancer treatments have been well documented. Long term monitoring of pediatric cancer survivors will help define conditions which arise, attempt to prevent complications, or provide early intervention for patients who are at risk.
