The purpose of this study is to see whether fast imaging with MRI and the usual contrast material used for MRI, predicts which patients will do well with treatment. Some studies suggest that MRIs done right before surgery may be able to tell how much of the cancer was killed by the chemotherapy. This study will see if this is true in patients with osteogenic sarcoma (OS) and Ewing's sarcoma (ES). This study will also see if MRIs done early in treatment can tell if the chemotherapy is working.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pts will undergo baseline MRI prior to begin chemotherapy. Bet 18-24 days after beginning chemotherapy, they will undergo second MRI. They will continue chemotherapy and w/in 25 days prior definitive surgery, will undergo another MRI. [ Time Frame: 8 years ]

Enrollment: 61
Study Start Date: July 2004
Study Completion Date: April 2014
Primary Completion Date: April 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Other: DCE-MRI

Patients will undergo DCE-MRI prior to, and within 18-24 days of starting chemotherapy. These studies are designed to determine if the DCE-MRI data will provide an a priori or early prognostic marker of tumor response. The dynamic MRI is done on a standard clinical scanner using standard techniques described below.

MR imaging studies will be acquired on a 1.5T GE (Milwaukee,WI) Signa LX scanner.

Detailed Description:
Patients will undergo DCE-MRI studies prior to chemotherapy, 18-24 days after starting treatment, continue treatment and undergo a third MRI within 25 days prior to surgery. All patients with OS or Ewing sarcoma who will undergo pre-operative chemotherapy are eligible for study. Anti-neoplastic therapy will be determined by the primary physician and will not be impacted upon by this study, although the data will be made available to the physicians involved in the patient's care. The goals of this study are: 1) To determine if pre-operative dynamic contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) can reliably predict percent necrosis at definitive surgery in bone tumors after induction chemotherapy. 2) Evaluate the hypothesis that in patients with Ewing or osteogenic sarcoma (OS), the a priori or early (18-24 days into treatment) DCE-MRI study predicts pathological percent necrosis measured at surgery, and disease free survival. 3) Determine if the DCE-MRI results are independent markers of tumor response compared to current clinical markers (LDH, alkaline phosphatase (osteogenic sarcoma only), primary disease site, primary disease size (length and volume), stage). 4) Compare the DCE-MRI results with several key molecular parameters including p53 mutations and CDKN2A deletion in Ewing's sarcoma and RB alterations, CDKN2A deletion, and expression of HER-2, platelet derived growth factor, reduced folate carrier, and pglycoprotein in osteogenic sarcoma. Ewing's sarcoma and osteogenic sarcoma samples will also be submitted for Affymetrix expression microarray analysis. Summary: This project will determine the potential of DCE-MRI to predict tumor necrosis and as an a priori or early marker of tumor response to neoadjuvant therapy
