Seattle Children’s Hospital launched a first-of-its-kind high-risk leukemia program, with the goal of redefining care for children with leukemia who did not respond to or relapsed after treatment. Program participants will be cared for by a multidisciplinary team of physicians who will use state-of-the-art diagnostic tests to match children with the latest treatments in clinical trials.
