See What We're Doing to Research Bone Tumors in Children
Research at Nemours improves the health and health care of all children. By seeking new approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of childhood diseases and educating the next generation of leaders in the fields of children’s and public health, Nemours is making a difference today and establishing opportunities to make a difference well into the future. Our growing research capability is a critical benefit to the well-being of the children we treat.
The Nemours Center for Childhood Cancer Research (NCCCR) is working to achieve a 100% cure rate of childhood cancers – and with minimal side effects. The work of NCCCR seeks to include scientists, physicians, patients, families, and the community in the creation of a National Cancer Institute-designated center where basic research closely complements clinical research in childhood cancers and develops strategies to advance cancer awareness, diagnosis, and treatment.
Clinical Trials for Pediatric Bone Tumors
Nemours often offers clinical trials related to pediatric bone tumors. A clinical trial is a study that evaluates new medicines, new devices, new treatments, or new applications for old treatments.
Clinical trials are safe and supervised by a qualified physician, under strict guidance of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Patient safety is extremely important to the FDA, to those conducting the studies, and to everyone at Nemours. In a clinical trial, children participating in the study are monitored closely – and families may refuse any aspect of the study treatment or completely discontinue their child’s participation in the clinical trial at any time.
