“We survived cancer”

NICHD seeks children and adults ages 2-24 to participate in a study of long-term follow up of pediatric cancer survivors. The purpose of this study is to screen for side effects that can sometimes happen in children who have a history of cancer. We are specifically interested in learning more about the endocrine system, which is made up of glands and hormones that help to control your growth and development.

Participation involves a visit to the pediatric endocrinology outpatient clinic. Based on review of the type of cancer and type of treatment received, we will discuss the potential endocrine side effects and will establish an individualized screening program. We may recommend a blood draw as well as imaging studies as appropriate, such as an x-ray, MRI, ultrasound, and/or bone density scan.

There is no cost for study-related tests or participating in this research study.

Who:

  • Children and Adults ages 2-24 with a history of cancer, who have completed their cancer treatment at least one year prior to entering the study.

What:

  • Study of endocrine related side effects related to cancer and its therapies in children.

Where:

  • NIH pediatric endocrinology clinic, Bethesda, Maryland.
