Our Doctors

Care and Treatment of Leukemia and Blood Cancers

Leading Research

Through their laboratory investigation and clinical research, Stanford clinicians are identifying the biologic mechanisms responsible for the development of leukemia, and developing more effective therapies to address these diseases. For example, researchers recently identified a set of 133 genes that point to the most dangerous strains of adult acute myeloid leukemia or AML. In the not so distant future, their research may help doctors pick the best treatment for their AML patients.

With expertise in the basic and clinical sciences, Stanford investigators are delving into the basic origins of blood diseases and in turn translating their findings into the most advanced diagnostic and treatment strategies available today.

As an academic medical institution, the Stanford Cancer Center is committed to improving the standard of care for the millions of individuals worldwide who receive a cancer diagnosis each year. Drawing upon the expertise of more than 240 researchers and clinicians from the Schools of Medicine, Engineering and Humanities & Sciences, the center is at the forefront of today's advances in cancer research and medicine.

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.
