Cancer and Blood Disorders Clinical Studies

Through clinical trials, the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh is accelerating the search for cures to childhood cancer. Collaborating closely with the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), the only pediatric oncology clinical trials group funded by the National Cancer Institute and National Institutes of Health, UPMC Children’s Hospital is among an elite group of medical centers participating in Phase I clinical trials through COG and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium.

We have organized the studies based on cancer subcategories, and the buttons below can help you locate a study relevant to your interests. Note that some studies appear in multiple subcategories. In particular, the Phase I grouping includes all of our early stage studies, which are also found within cancer-type subcategories.

Browse the studies within a subcategory to review brief descriptions and requirements. Or if you are looking for a study dealing with a very specific condition, please use the search tool at the top of this page. Be sure to include the word "study" along with the name of the condition. Physicians or parents/guardians of pediatric patients who might be eligible are encouraged to ask about enrollment. Contact information is provided in each study description.

Thank you for exploring these opportunities and helping us find cures for childhood cancer. Learn more about clinical studies, including frequently asked questions and how to participate.
