Children and Clinical Studies
(National Heart Lung and Blood Institute)
Children’s bodies do not react the same as adults to certain medical treatments. This Website explains why this is and why research into children’s medical care is important. It answers questions about enrolling a child in a clinical trial: the pros and cons, how studies are structured, precautions parents should take, and the rights of children and parents involved in a clinical study. Included are videos of professionals, parents, and children discussing these issues.
