The research department of the Dept. of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology is also dedicated to translational and clinical research of leukemias, neuroblastomas and other embryonal tumor diseases in childhood in various scientific projects.
In the treatment of children and adolescents with malignant diseases, pediatric oncology is guided by the high therapy standards and protocols of the Society for Pediatric Oncology and Hematology (GPOH) and other international pediatric oncology societies. Therapeutic findings are evidence-based. The Dept. of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology distances itself from the opinion that homeopathy has a place in pediatric oncological primary therapy.
