Event-free Survival Probability by Risk Group [ Time Frame: Median 6.4 year follow-up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Event-free survival (EFS) is based on the time from protocol enrollment to the occurrence of first event (relapse or progressive disease, subsequent malignancy, or death from any cause). Patients not experiencing an event are censored at their last follow-up date. Event-free Survival Probability will be estimated by Kaplan-Meier method with a 95% confidence interval.
To find out if patients with Hodgkin’s disease can be effectively treated with fewer chemotherapy treatments and lower doses of radiation.

  • Correlation of Agreement Between Patient Physical QoL and Parent Proxy Physical QoL at Multiple Time Points.

    Assess and compare the patient reported and parent proxy physical quality of life across multiple time points using the Peds Quality of Life version 4. Assessment was performed across all risk groups. The QL scoring is a 5-point Likert scale from 0 (never) to 4 (almost always). Scores are transformed on a scale from 0 to 100.

Therapy for Pediatric Hodgkin Lymphoma
Risk-Adapted Therapy for Pediatric Hodgkin's Disease

With the success of current chemotherapy for Hodgkin's disease, the goal of this protocol is to maintain the currently successful cure rate and reduce treatment related side effects and long term toxicity. The main purpose of this study is to estimate the event free survival of patients treated with risk-adapted therapy compared to historical controls.

This study will evaluate the following objectives:

Primary Objectives:

  1. To evaluate the efficacy of 4 cycles of VAMP chemotherapy alone in patients with favorable risk Hodgkin's disease who achieve a complete response after 2 cycles of VAMP chemotherapy.
  2. To evaluate the efficacy of 4 cycles VAMP chemotherapy plus low dose RT in patients with favorable risk Hodgkin's disease who achieve a partial response after 2 cycles of VAMP chemotherapy.
  3. To evaluate the efficacy of 2 alternating cycles of VAMP/COP chemotherapy (total 4 cycles of chemotherapy) plus low-dose, involved-field RT in children with intermediate risk Hodgkin's disease.
  4. To evaluate the efficacy of 12 weeks of Stanford V chemotherapy plus low-dose, involved-field RT in children with unfavorable risk Hodgkin's disease.

Secondary Objectives:

  1. To evaluate patient quality of life during and after treatment from the patient and parent perspective.
  2. To compare patient and parental ratings of treatment-related symptoms and patient physical, psychological, social and cognitive functioning before the first treatment (T1 - baseline); after Cycle 2 or after 8 weeks of Stanford V (T2 - Evaluate Response); after cycle 4 or after 12 weeks of Stanford V and before or on the first day of radiation (as applicable) (T3); at the conclusion of radiation or within a few days following the end of radiation (as applicable) (T4); and at 3 to 6 months after completion of therapy follow-up evaluation (T5).

    Intervention: Drug: 12 Week Stanford V Chemotherapy
  • Experimental: Favorable Risk

    Intervention: Drug: 4 cycles of VAMP chemotherapy
  • Experimental: Intermediate Risk
    Intermediate Arm in patients with Hodgkins's disease (n=46).
    Intervention: Drug: 2 alternating cycles of VAMP/COP chemotherapy
  • Experimental: Unfavorable Risk, Group 1
