Conditions Treated by Experimental Therapeutics

We partner with national and international groups to study and share the latest cutting-edge treatments for many conditions. Our experimental program provides special care to children with complicated or unusual forms of these conditions:

  • Bone tumors and other sarcomas
  • Brain tumors
  • Leukemias
  • Lymphomas
  • Neuroblastoma
  • Neurofibromatosis-related tumors

Learn more about experimental therapeutics

We offer experimental therapeutics for:

  • Patients with a poor prognosis when they are first diagnosed
  • Advanced and recurring tumors or those that do not respond to initial treatments

We offer different types of experimental therapeutics, which are used to customize treatment plans based on each patient's unique disease and genetic makeup:

  • Immunotherapy trials - Utilizing a patient's own immune system to help fight cancer.  This can be with immune checkpoint inhibitors, vaccine treatments, antibody treatments among other methods.
  • Personalized medicine (also called molecular profiling) - Identifying changes in genes and expression of genes that are altered in cancer cells and using therapies that target these specific changes.
  • Targeted agents - Treatments that kill cancer cells by targeted specific changes in the genes or gene expression of the cancer cells.
  • Early phase drug trials - Clinical trials aim to improve survival duration and quality for patients, often for the cancers which are most difficult to cure.
