Current Research

For Patients & Parents

Researchers at St. Jude are studying pediatric adrenocortical tumors (ACT) in several ways. The studies include:

  • Learning how TP53 genes are involved in ACT,
  • Testing the success of new drugs in a laboratory,
  • Observing the health of people with ACT and family members over time, and
  • Working with scientists from Children’s Oncology Group (COG), a research organization, on a new ACT treatment that combines chemotherapy and a new surgical approach.
