St. Jude offers exceptional care to eligible children and young adults with newly diagnosed, untreated or suspected diseases we treat. These include:
- Pediatric cancer
- HIV infections
- Certain hematologic diseases
- Certain genetic conditions
We also consider previously treated patients who have received treatment elsewhere depending upon clinical trial eligibility for ongoing studies, relapse studies, bone marrow transplantation protocols or Phase I-II studies.
We accept most patients based on their eligibility to enroll in an open clinical trial.
Why St. Jude
Our mission is simple: Finding cures. Saving children. We take the toughest cases. This often includes children who do not respond well to standard treatments.
One unique benefit of St. Jude treatment is our long-term care and support for your patient. Our goal is to help every childhood cancer survivor live a full, happy and healthy life.
In our efforts to fulfill this goal, St. Jude offers follow-up and support care to patients for years after remission. We also research late effects of cancer and its treatment. This research improves the quality of life of survivors.
