  Purpose

This is a Phase II pilot study of chemotherapy and surgery for children with advanced stage high-risk neuroblastoma utilizing topotecan during an upfront window and other active agents during induction and intensification phases. The primary purpose is to estimate the response rate to an upfront window of two cycles of intravenous topotecan. We hypothesize that the topotecan window will be an effective therapy in terms of the response rate.
