It’s possible that your child will be eligible to participate in one of Boston Children's Hospital's current clinical trials. These studies are useful for a multitude of reasons:
Some trials are designed to evaluate the effectiveness of a particular medication treatment or therapy on a specific disease; others help doctors to better understand how and why certain conditions occur.
Participation in any clinical trial is always completely voluntary: We will take care to fully explain all elements of the treatment plan prior to the start of the trial, and you may remove your child from the medical study at any time.
