This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatments||asparaginase, cytarabine, daunorubicin hydrochloride, dexamethasone, methotrexate, prednisone, vincristine sulfate, radiation therapy|
|Phase||phase 2/phase 3|
|Sponsor||Grupo Argentino de Tratamiento de la Leucemia Aguda|
|Start date||January 1990|
|Trial identifier||NCT00002499, ARG-GATLA-1LLAREC90, CDR0000077835, NCI-F92-0006|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II/III trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy in treating children with relapsed acute lymphocytic leukemia.
Male or female participants up to 19 years old.
DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS: ALL in first hematologic relapse during or following completion of treatment on a BFM protocol (ARG-GATLA-1-LLA-82, -84, -87, or -90) M2-M3 bone marrow required PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS: Age: Under 20 Performance status: Not specified Life expectancy: Greater than 8 weeks Hematopoietic: Not specified Hepatic: No significant liver disease Renal: No significant kidney disease Cardiovascular: No significant heart disease Pulmonary: No significant lung disease Other: No significant digestive disease PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY: Biologic therapy: Not specified Chemotherapy: Prior total anthracycline no greater than 280 mg/sqm Endocrine therapy: Not specified Radiotherapy: Not specified Surgery: Not applicable
|Official title||TREATMENT OF ALL IN FIRST BONE MARROW RELAPSE AFTER BFM PROTOCOLS|
|Description||OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the feasibility, at GATLA, of a study of the treatment of ALL in first hematologic relapse following treatment on a BFM protocol. II. Evaluate the efficacy of induction with vincristine/daunorubicin/asparaginase/prednisone in producing a second complete remission in these patients, and evaluate the toxicity of this regimen. III. Evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of the Capizzi I regimen (vincristine/asparaginase/methotrexate) and Capizzi II regimen (cytarabine/asparaginase/daunorubicin) when given to maintain and prolong complete remission. IV. Offer the option of bone marrow transplantation to those patients who are in second remission and who have a histocompatible donor, and compare outcome of these patients with those on chemotherapy alone. OUTLINE: Nonrandomized study. Patients achieving remission on Induction proceed to Interim Maintenance, then to Continued Maintenance; those failing to achieve remission receive Salvage Re-induction, followed, if remission is achieved, by Interim Maintenance, then Continued Maintenance. Induction: 4-Drug Combination Chemotherapy with CNS Prophylaxis/Therapy. Vincristine, VCR, NSC-67574; Prednisone, PRED, NSC-10023; Asparaginase, ASP, NSC-109229; Daunorubicin, DNR, NSC-82151; with Intrathecal Cytarabine, IT ARA-C, NSC-63878; Intrathecal Dexamethasone, IT DM, NSC-34521. Interim Maintenance: 3-Drug Combination Chemotherapy with, as indicated, Radiotherapy. VCR; ASP; Methotrexate, MTX, NSC-740; with, as indicated, testicular irradiation (equipment not specified). Continued Maintenance: 3-Drug Combination Chemotherapy followed by 3-Drug Combination Chemotherapy with CNS Prophylaxis and, as indicated, Radiotherapy. Capizzi II: ARA-C; ASP; DNR; followed by Capizzi I: VCR; ASP; MTX; with IT ARA-C; IT DM; and, as indicated, cranial irradiation (equipment not specified). Salvage Re-induction: 2-Drug Combination Chemotherapy. ARA-C; ASP. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: At least 72 evaluable patients will be entered. Accrual is expected to be completed in 3 years.|
