  Purpose
This randomized phase III trial is studying two different combination chemotherapy regimens to compare how well they work when given before a peripheral stem cell transplant in treating young patients with newly diagnosed supratentorial primitive neuroectodermal tumors or high-risk medulloblastoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) together with a peripheral stem cell transplant may allow more chemotherapy to be given so that more tumor cells are killed. It is not yet known which combination chemotherapy regimen is more effective when given before a peripheral stem cell transplant in treating supratentorial primitive neuroectodermal tumors or medulloblastoma.

Further study details as provided by Children's Oncology Group:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Complete response (CR) rate [ Time Frame: From baseline to up to 9 years ]
    At the end of consolidation, the number of evaluable patients treated with intensive chemotherapy with methotrexate who achieved CR or not will be compared to those who achieved CR or not after treated with the same intensive chemotherapy without methotrexate. The CR rates between these two groups will be compared at a significance level of 0.1 using one-sided Chi-square test.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Event Free Survival (EFS) [ Time Frame: Baseline to up to 5 years ]
    Event Free Probability where EFS time is defined as time from enrollment to the occurrence of first event (disease progression/relapse, secondary malignancy, death from any cause) or date of last contact for patients who are event-free. The probability and 95% confidence interval will be provided. The difference in incidence for the two treatment regimens will be compared using a one-sided log-rank test with a significance level 0.1.

  • Patterns of Failure [ Time Frame: Baseline to up to 5 years ]
    The patterns of failure for relapse/disease progression will be provided for patients treated with/without methotrexate drug. The two groups will be compared to detect a statistically significant difference using Fisher exact test.

  • Toxicity rates of any Acute Adverse Events Reported [ Time Frame: Beginning of treatment to up to 9 years ]
    Event is defined as the first occurrence of any acute toxicity. Estimates will be obtained using life-table methods. Patients who have progression or recurrence of disease will be censored in this analysis. Difference in incidence for the two treatment regimens will be compared using log-rank test.

  • Toxicity rates of Acute Hearing Loss [ Time Frame: Beginning of treatment to up to 9 years ]
    Toxicities reported as "Impaired Hearing Loss" with grade >3 or more will be considered in this analysis. Descriptive statistics such as number and percentage between the two treatment regimens will be reported and will be compared using Fisher exact test.

  • Rate of chronic Primary Hypothyroidism/Subclinical Compensatory Hypothyroidism [ Time Frame: Beginning of treatment to up to 9 years ]
    Primary Hypothyroidism or Subclinical Compensatory Hypothyroidism is defined as patients with Free T4 level < Normal or equal to Normal with TSH level > Normal. As numbers are too small, descriptive statistics such as number and percentage will be reported for this analysis.

  • Rate of chronic Central Hypothyroidism [ Time Frame: Beginning of treatment to up to 9 years ]
    Central Hypothyroidism is defined as Free T4 level < Normal with TSH < Normal or equal to Normal. As numbers are too small, descriptive statistics such as number and percentage will be reported for this analysis.

  • Rate of chronic Low Somatomedin C [ Time Frame: Beginning of treatment to up to 9 years ]
    Low Somatomedin C is defined as patients with somatomedin C value less than institutional normal. As numbers are too small, descriptive statistics such as number and percentage will be reported for this analysis.

  • Rate of chronic Diabetes Insipidus [ Time Frame: Beginning of treatment to up to 9 years ]
    The number of patients who had "Diabetes Insipidus" and on DDAVP will be reported for this analysis due to small numbers.

  • Secondary Malignancies [ Time Frame: Beginning of treatment to up to 9 years ]
    The number of patients who had secondary malignancy will be reported for this analysis due to small numbers.

  • Rates of Chronic/Late Hearing Loss [ Time Frame: Beginning of treatment to up to 9 years ]
    The number of patients who are reported to have abnormal hearing, graded according to CTCAE 4.0 or not, with onset while on therapy or when off therapy which persisted after off therapy will be reported and will be compared using Fisher exact test.

  • Rates of gastrointestinal toxicities [ Time Frame: In each 21 day cycle ]
    Rates of gastrointestinal toxicities reported as Adverse Events during therapy for each cycle will be summarized using standard descriptive methods (such as number and percentage of patients). The difference in percentage of patients with gastrointestinal toxicities between the two treatment regimens will be compared using a Chi-square test.

  • Rates of nutritional toxicities [ Time Frame: In each 21 day cycle ]
    Rates of nutritional toxicities reported as Adverse Events during therapy for each cycle will be summarized using standard descriptive methods (such as number and percentage of patients). The difference in percentage of patients with nutritional toxicities between the two treatment regimens will be compared using a Chi-square test.

  • Quality of life and neuropsychological (NP) scores as assessed by the Children Oncology Group (COG) Standard Neuropsychological and Behavioral Battery [ Time Frame: From baseline to up to 9 years ]

    Parent-report questionnaires will be completed to gather information about the patient's function, specifically in terms of attention, memory, executive abilities, and behavioral/social/emotional adaptation. Long-term effects of treatment on neuropsychological and quality of life outcomes will be primarily descriptive. Correlational analyses will be conducted, with Pearson product moment correlations computed for continuous data and chi-square analyses conducted for discrete data.

    COG administration denied participation in planned neuropsychological data collection at initiation of study until study accrual 3/4 over and unable to accomplish effectively at that point. So standardized neuropsychological data or QOL data not available for analysis.


  • To determine number and nature of molecular sub-types of MB, CNS-PNETs/EBTs represented in the ACNS0334 cohort [ Time Frame: At baseline ]

    The number of patients with molecular subtypes of MB, CNS-PNETs/EBTs will be reported along with 95% CI.

    No data available for analysis at this time-point.
