Conquering Diseases

Neuroblastoma Biology Study - Sharing Information To Fight The Disease.

Description

This study is for patients who may have neuroblastoma, a tumor of nerve cells typically found in the stomach, chest or neck of young children. This is a data and sample collection study to help us better understand this disease.

Overview

There are no special visits for this study. Data will be collected at your your regular clinic visits. While the diagnosis is being confirmed or during a procedure, the study team will collect additional blood samples or remaining tissue samples for testing now or in the future. Some patients will be told about other studies that they may want to join.

What we're hoping for

By gathering data from patients with neuroblastoma and sharing this information, we can better understand and treat the disease.
