City of Hope

Treating children, adolescents and young adults with cancer and blood diseases demands special attention. At City of Hope, we are honored to partner with you in determining the best treatment options for your younger patients. Our team of clinical specialists and researchers are pioneering innovative treatments for pediatric cancer and childhood diseases, including advances in gene therapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapy.

Refer your patient to one of our clinical trials and they will benefit from:
  • Program acceptance to anyone up to age 26.
  • Access to a large number of clinical trials, including all Children’s Oncology Group clinical trials and adult trials that are typically difficult for pediatricians to access.
  • Access to many phase 1 and phase 2 clinical trials — including immunotherapy, cell therapy and new agent trials — available only at City of Hope.
  • Our expertise in treating newly diagnosed patients and patients with relapsed or refractory leukemia. Our renowned stem cell transplantation program offers a quick and seamless transition to those patients needing hematopoietic stem cell transplants.
Referral is easy and we provide continuing communication between referring physicians and our team.
