(Posted: 05/17/2011) - In this trial, patients up to age 18 who are newly diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG) or who have other high-grade gliomas that could not be completely resected will undergo radiation therapy and receive oral lenalidomide at increasing doses daily for 6 weeks, followed by lenalidomide alone.
- Novel Combination Chemotherapy for Localized Ewing Sarcoma
(Posted: 03/22/2011) - In this clinical trial, researchers will test whether the addition of the drug combination vincristine, topotecan, and cyclophosphamide to a standard chemotherapy regimen improves overall survival and event-free survival in newly diagnosed patients with non-metastatic Ewing sarcoma of the bone or soft tissue (excluding the soft tissue of the skull).
