Efficacy of Carboplatin Administered Concomitantly With Radiation and Isotretinoin as a Pro-Apoptotic Agent in Other Than Average Risk Medulloblastoma/PNET Patients
Provider Data DescriptionNCT00392327-D2-Dataset
The second dataset (D2) contains data provided by the central pathologist on the 10 patients who were selected for a second central pathology review, given the discrepancies between profiling and centrally reviewed histopathologic diagnoses. This second central pathology review was done at the request of one of the journal article reviewers. The text in the results section of the manuscript and the associated data are geared towards pathologists rather than the general readership.

Brief SummaryThis randomized phase III trial studies different chemotherapy and radiation therapy regimens to compare how well they work in treating young patients with newly diagnosed, previously untreated, high-risk medulloblastoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vincristine sulfate, cisplatin, cyclophosphamide, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Carboplatin may make tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. It is not yet known which chemotherapy and radiation therapy regimen is more effective in treating brain tumors.
