Pediatric Hematology/Oncology : Clinical Services

Early Phase Clinical Trials Program

The Early Phase Clinical Trials Program led by John M. Goldberg, M.D., brings experimental agents to pediatric/young adult oncology patients in the state of Florida in a collaborative method of care.

Leukemias & Lymphomas
We are a full member of Therapeutic Advances in Childhood Leukemia and Lymphoma. As a TACL member, phase I/II trials are available through our group, and dovetail with very high risk leukemia patients who are under consideration for hematopoietic stem cell transplant through our designated Children’s Oncology Group Bone Marrow Transplant institute.

Sarcomas & Brain Tumors
We have a major focus on developing tumor vaccines for solid tumors and brain tumors of childhood, as well as clinical trials for adolescent and young adult patients. As member of the Sarcoma Alliance for Research through Collaboration (SARC), we have the opportunity to bring clinical trials for sarcomas to patients in south Florida.

Through our involvement in national groups, we are able to develop and lead clinical trials for children across the country based on the work of our own laboratory investigators. Currently there are 12 open pediatric Phase I/II protocols for childhood leukemia and solid tumors. Please click here for a list of clinical trials.
