Focus: Neuroblastoma Research

Cook Children's Neuroblastoma program has a clinical research team that is dedicated to making the health of children with neuroblastoma better. As part of this program, a dedicated research staff is continually working to advance neuroblastoma treatment for kids.

Currently, our team actively participates in clinical trials through many venues. Cook Children's must meet the guidelines of each group we partner with as well as successfully pass routine audits and site visits to be accepted and maintain privileges. The groups we currently partner with include:

  • New Approaches to Neuroblastoma Therapy (NANT)
  • Children's Oncology Group (COG)
  • Cancer Trials Support Group (CTSU)

Cook Children's Neuroblastoma program is interested in a range of topics relating to the care provided to our patients. Some of the current research interests include:

  • Shortening time to diagnosis
  • Side effects of cancer therapy
  • Outcomes of specified therapeutic agents
  • Long-term effects following treatment
