|Brief Title ICMJE||Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Young Patients With Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis|
|Official Title ICMJE||Treatment Protocol of the Third International Study For Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of Langerhans cell histiocytosis, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may be an effective treatment for Langerhans cell histiocytosis.
PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying combination chemotherapy to see how well it works in treating young patients with Langerhans cell histiocytosis.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study with one pilot nonrandomized stratum. Patients are stratified according to number of systems involved (multiple vs single) and organs involved (at risk vs low risk).
NOTE: *Patients receive oral prednisolone 3 times daily on days 43-45, 50-52, 57-59, 64-66, 71-73, and 78-80 only during the second course of initial therapy.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically for 5 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 376 patients will be accrued for this study.
