Clinical research (medical scientific research in humans) is essential for improving the treatment and care of children and young adults with cancer. More than 100 clinical studies are currently ongoing within the Princess Máxima Centre for pediatric oncology. The Trial and Data Center (TDC) coordinates and supports all these studies.
For example, the Trial and Data Center guides the procedures involved in the approval of study and treatment protocols, and offers help in registration and statistical analysis of the data. With the aim to ensure that all studies are of the highest quality for further improvement of treatment and care.
