Clinical trials are patient studies that test new treatments and therapies. The main purpose of clinical trials is to find a better way to prevent, diagnose or treat a disease. Everyone who participates in clinical trials is a volunteer.
At Children’s Health℠, research is a way of life and a way forward to better care. Our physicians and scientists actively engage in research and innovation, every day. Current research – in conjunction with UT Southwestern – focuses on a number of critical areas in pediatric health, expanding treatment options and redefining what is possible in pediatric medicine.
The purpose of this research study is to make 131I-MIBG therapy available to patients with advanced neuroblastoma, pheochromocytoma, or paraganglioma and further assess the side effects of 131I-MIBG therapy.
The purpose of the study is to assess the efficacy and safety of tisagenlecleucel in children and adolescents with relapsed/refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (r/r B-NHL). For pediatric patients who have r/r B-NHL, survival rates are dismal, only ~20-50% subjects are alive at 2 years with overall response rate (ORR) of 20-30% after conventional salvage chemotherapy.
