At Nemours Children's, we’re actively seeking new approaches to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of childhood diseases. Our goal, in everything we do, is to improve the lives of the children we see, as well as those of children everywhere.
This listing below contains information on clinical trials, clinical studies and registries underway at Nemours facilities in the Delaware Valley and Florida.
What is a clinical trial or study?
A clinical trial or clinical study is research that evaluates the use of a new intervention (such as a new drug, device, treatment or technique) on human subjects with a particular disease or condition.
What is a registry?
A registry is a research collection of medical information from people who have received or are receiving a certain intervention for a particular disease or condition. Often called “summary medical information,” these are the health records that patients have either provided — or have authorized researchers to access — in order to populate a registry. Researchers can then analyze registries to look for patterns in the data and evaluate whether better outcomes under certain conditions are consistently associated with a particular intervention. Participation in a registry is voluntary and confidential.
