Learn more about how experimental therapeutics can help your child

If your child is already a patient at Arkansas Children’s we have all of the information and paperwork needed to determine if he or she is a candidate for our experimental therapeutics program.

If your child is referred to us, our experts will determine if there is a therapy or clinical trial that can help your child. If there is, then we will study your child’s case to make sure there is nothing in his or her medical history that would exclude him or her from participating.

When our experimental therapeutics program is not a fit, we will work with you to find a medical center that makes sense for your child’s specific condition.

Share your child’s information with us

To help us determine if your child can take part in a clinical trial through our Experimental Therapeutics Program you will need to send the materials listed on the Required Medical Records Checklist (as applicable).

The materials needed are:

  • Please do not send the entire medical record
