Oklahoma Pediatric Clinical Trials Network (OPCTN)

The goal of the Oklahoma Pediatric Clinical Trials Network (OPCTN) is to provide access for the underserved rural urban minority, and American Indian populations of children in Oklahoma to state-of-the-art clinical trials and the transfer of findings that will benefit the health of those children. The OPCTN will be a member of the IDeA States Pediatric Clinical Trials Network (ISPCTN). The ISPCTN will facilitate the involvement of sites in IDeA states to participate in the Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) study will focus on four primary ears of child health: 1) upper and lower airway disease, 2) obesity; 3) pre-, peri-, and postnatal outcomes; and 4) neurodevelopment. These are each areas of substantial health concern for Oklahoma.
