Treatment of Neuroepithelial Tumor of the Kidney

Current Clinical Trials

Optimal treatment has not been established for these tumors. Treatment according to Ewings/primitive neuroectodermal tumor protocols should be considered.[1]

Current Clinical Trials

Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor of the kidney. The list of clinical trials can be further narrowed by location, drug, intervention, and other criteria.

General information about clinical trials is also available from the NCI Web site.
