1910 milligrams per meter squared (mg/m^2) (or 60 milligrams per kilogram [mg/kg] if patient <12 months old), intravenous (IV), for 21 days x 17 cycles
- Percentage of Participants With Overall Tumor Response (Response Rate) [ Time Frame: baseline to measured progressive disease (up to 1 year) ]Response using Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria. Complete Response = disappearance of all target lesions. Partial Response = 30% decrease in sum of longest diameter of target lesions. Response rate (percent [%])= (number of participants with complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) in stratum/number of participants in stratum)*100.
- Number of Patients With Adverse Events, Discontinuations, or Deaths Possibly Due to Study Drug [ Time Frame: every cycle (up to 2 years and 7 months) ]AdEERS= Adverse Event Expedited Reporting System; AE = adverse event. Patients may be counted in more than 1 category. Includes events that were considered possibly related to study drug (PRSD) as judged by the investigator.
- Pharmacogenomics - Measure the Response of Genes Related to Toxicity [ Time Frame: baseline ]The pharmacogenomics outcomes examining the correlation between the presence of the methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase gene and the presence of a polymorphism in the thymidylate synthase (TS) gene and/or gene promoter and toxicity were optional and will not be reported here. Results of this optional research may be reported in the future by the Children's Oncology Group in the peer-reviewed literature.
