Content

Following an explanation of the nature and purpose of clinical trials and all their phases, there is a complete listing of more than 80 active CCG research protocols covering studies of new chemical agents, biology, epidemiology, late effects and therapeutic protocols (see below for further details).
The National Childhood Childhood Cancer Foundation is described as a non-profit organization which supports pediatric cancer treatment and research projects at over 115 of the most prestigious pediatric medical institutions in the US, Canada and Australia. This network of 2500 pediatric cancer specialists is called the Children’s Cancer Group.
