Cardinal Glennon / Clinical Trials

As a recognized leader in hematology and oncology, the team at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital offers clinical trials for a wide range of children’s cancer and blood disorders. Our physicians develop clinical trials and participate in major pediatric cancer and blood disorder clinical trial groups including the Children’s Oncology Group and the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium.

Our patients participate in clinical trials or studies and research shows that children who participate in a clinical trial have better outcomes. We work closely with referring physicians and patient families to identify the best options for treatment and ways to support the child and their entire family throughout their treatment process.
