Psychology Clinical Trials

Non-therapeutic protocols address such issues as side effects or long-term effects of therapy, quality of life, making testing easier on the children, prevention of pain, and issues related to nutrition and stress. There are also tissue and blood banking protocols for laboratory researchers who are studying diseases and searching for underlying causes and cures. The research at St. Jude is designed to include all aspects related to the care of sick children and their families.
