Experimental Therapy for Pediatric Cancer at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Clinical trials are among the fastest and safest ways to find treatments that work against pediatric cancer. Studies have shown that children's survival rates are increased by 20 to 40 percent if their cancer care is coordinated by pediatric oncologists that follow established clinical trial protocols. As a national leader in pediatric cancer research, not only are the majority of patients at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia enrolled in some sort of clinical trial but many of the trials that are launched at cancer programs across the country, are developed right here by CHOP's very own cancer researchers — allowing the same people who developed the trial, to care for your child.
