San Diego Union-Tribune

Rady Children’s Hospital is looking for parents of 30 infants who would like to enroll their child in a clinical trial studying a possible treatment for hemangioma, a disfiguring birthmark that sometimes causes serious medical problems.

The study will look at the efficacy of using a blood pressure drug called Propranolol to shrink hemangiomas.
