NCT00003436

  Purpose

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with bone marrow transplantation may allow doctors to give higher doses of chemotherapy and kill more cancer cells. It is not yet known whether chemotherapy is more effective with or without bone marrow transplantation for acute myeloid leukemia.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of chemotherapy with or without bone marrow transplantation in treating children who have acute myeloid leukemia.
