In cancer research, clinical trials are designed to answer questions about new ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, or treat diseases. People who take part in cancer clinical trials receive state-of-the-art care from our cancer experts.
Blood / Hematologic Cancers
Hematologic cancers include cancers of the blood and blood-forming tissues (such as the bone marrow). They include acute and chronic leukemias, Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, and multiple myeloma (a cancer of the bone marrow). Doctors at the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center specialize in diagnosis and treating these cancers, as well as non-cancerous disorders of the blood and bone marrow (such as anemia, clotting disorders, and myeloproliferative diseases, where the body does not produce enough functional blood cells).
