A Phase III Randomized Trial for Newly Diagnosed High Risk B-precursor Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) Testing Clofarabine in the Very High Risk Stratum
Children's Oncology Group
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) and giving the drugs in different doses and in different combinations may kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying how well combination chemotherapy works in treating young patients with newly diagnosed high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
