Patient Referrals

Patients accepted to St. Jude must have a disease we treat and must be referred by a physician or other qualified medical professional. We accept most patients based on their ability to enroll in an open clinical trial.

Clinical trial acceptance requirements

Requirements for acceptance to a St. Jude clinical trial include:

  • Age
  • Type and stage of disease
  • Other medical criteria

Some trials only accept patients who have not yet started treatment.
