Eligibility Overview:

This is a non-therapeutic clinical trial that is only open to St. Jude patients.

  • All patients being followed or treated at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the diagnosis of childhood cancer
  • Patient has not been permanently discharged from care and follow-up

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.

Objectives

  • To collect information about the effects of childhood cancer and its treatment on the patients who are treated or followed after treatment for childhood cancer at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Eligibility

  • All patients being followed or treated at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the diagnosis of childhood cancer
