ACCL2031: A Study to See if Memantine Protects the Brain During Radiation Therapy Treatment for a Brain Tumor

  • Ages: 4 Years to 17 Years

This phase III trial compares memantine to usual treatment in treating patients with brain tumors that are newly diagnosed or has come back (recurrent). Memantine may block receptors (parts of nerve cells) in the brain known to contribute to a decline in cognitive function. Giving memantine may make ...More

ACNS1422: A Phase 2 Study of Reduced Therapy for Newly Diagnosed Average-Risk WNT-Driven Medulloblastoma Patients

PURPOSE: This phase II trial studies how well reduced doses of radiation therapy to the brain and spine (craniospinal) and chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed type of brain tumor called WNT)/Wingless (WNT)-driven medulloblastoma.

ACNS2031: A Study of Treatment for Medulloblastoma Using Sodium Thiosulfate to Reduce Hearing Loss

  • Ages: 3 Years to 21 Years

This phase III trial tests the addition of sodium thiosulfate to standard of care chemotherapy and radiation therapy in treating patients with low or average risk medulloblastoma (a type of cancer in the brain). Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Chemoth ...More
