Summary

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.

Additional Information

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.
