Care and Treatment of Leukemia and Blood Cancers

Programs and Services

The extensive range of advanced clinical services available under one roof truly reflects the world-class nature of the treatment patients receive at the Stanford Cancer Center.

Here is a sampling of some of the programs and services available to you:

Care for your mind and spirit at Stanford

It wouldn't be the best care possible if we didn't provide it in an atmosphere that soothes your soul and makes navigating treatment simple and convenient. By providing nourishing details like live piano music in the entry, natural light throughout the building, and room for your family to remain with you while you are receiving treatment, the Stanford Cancer Center stands as a physical symbol of our concern for your health and well-being.

In addition, a variety of services, and support staff are available to help with emotional, physical, or social challenges that you might encounter while receiving cancer care. Visit Cancer Patient Services to learn more about the variety of programs and services we offer.

Support groups and classes

The importance of support groups and their impact on cancer patient outcomes is well established; much of this important work has come from support groups at Stanford. Psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers are involved in cancer support groups within the program.

Visit the Cancer Supportive Care Program to learn about the free classes, groups, and events we offer at the Stanford Cancer Center.

Clinical Trials

Leading research

Through their laboratory investigation and clinical research, Stanford Hematology Program clinicians are identifying the biologic mechanisms responsible for the development of hematological disorders and developing more effective therapies to address these diseases. Additionally, our doctors are engaged a number of clinical trials through the Southwest Oncology Group and the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group, as well as in Stanford-based studies.

Innovative research in clinical trials

Stanford has an extensive portfolio of clinical trials using novel therapies and investigational agents for all types of leukemia, multiple myeloma, and myelopfoliferative neoplasms.

Clinical trial participation

Doctors from the Division of Hematology are engaged a number of clinical trials through the Southwest Oncology Group and the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group, as well as in Stanford-based studies. Some of our current clinical trials include:

  • Antibody therapy for chronic lymphocytic leukemia
  • Arsenic trioxide for promyelocytic leukemia
  • Anti-angiogenesis therapies (treatments that seek to prevent tumors from generating new blood supplies to nourish themselves)

Before beginning treatment, ask your doctor about any clinical trials you should consider. Learn more about clinical trials for cancer patients.

Clinical trial eligibility flowcharts

Eligibility flowcharts map clinical trials to specific types of cancers to determine if a participant is eligible for the particular clinical trial. View all hematology eligibility flowcharts at the Stanford Cancer Institute.
