RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Giving chemotherapy drugs before surgery may shrink the tumor so that it can be removed during surgery.
PURPOSE: Phase III trial to determine the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy given before surgery in treating children who have localized neuroblastoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Neuroblastoma||Drug: carboplatin Drug: cyclophosphamide Drug: doxorubicin hydrochloride Drug: etoposide Drug: vincristine sulfate Procedure: adjuvant therapy Procedure: conventional surgery Procedure: neoadjuvant therapy||Phase 3|
- Determine the outcome, in terms of local control, event-free survival, and overall survival, of children with localized unresectable neuroblastoma without MYCN amplification treated with carboplatin, etoposide, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and vincristine followed by surgery.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive carboplatin IV over 1 hour and etoposide IV over 2 hours on days 1-3 (courses 1 and 3). Patients receive cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on days 1-5 (or orally on days 2 and 3), doxorubicin IV over 6 hours on days 4-5, and vincristine IV on days 1 and 5 (courses 2 and 4). Treatment repeats every 21 days for 4 courses. Patients then undergo surgical resection followed by 2 additional courses of chemotherapy.
Patients are followed at months 8, 10, 12, 16, 20, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, and 60.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 100 patients will be accrued for this study within 4 years.
