What will happen if I decide not to enroll my child in a research protocol?

If you decide not to enroll your child as part of a research protocol, your child may still receive care at St. Jude or will be referred to another hospital for appropriate treatment. In either case,   St. Jude staff will assist you.

If you feel for any reason, at any time, that you wish your child to be removed from a study, you have the right to do so. Patients age 18 and older can remove themselves from a study at any time. If you do this, it is important that you talk to your doctor first about other options or treatments.
