Talk to your child’s doctor to find out about current trials.

The following websites allow you to search for current trials that your child might be able to join:

  • Australian Children’s Cancer Clinical Trials Registry - all clinical trials open to children and adolescents with cancer or blood disorders current in progress at children's cancer centres in Australia. 

  • Australian Clinical Trials - information about all types of current clinical trials, not just for cancer. It includes a section on clinical trials and children, which explains the informed consent and assent processes for children.

  • Cancer Australia's Australian Cancer Trials  -  information about the latest clinical trials for cancer care.  Please note that some of these trials will not be listed as 'Paediatric'; some adult trials may also apply to children.

Cancer Australia's Support for Cancer Clinical Trials program provides funding to Australia's 13 National Cancer Cooperative Trials Group, including the Australian and New Zealand Children's Haematology and Oncology Group (ANZCHOG).
