Why are we doing this research?
This trial studies how well selumetinib works in treating patients with low-grade glioma. Selumetinib is a drug that works by blocking a protein (a basic building block of the human body) that lets tumor cells grow without stopping. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and vincristine, 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. This trial studies if selumetinib works as well as carboplatin and vincristine for getting rid of or shrinking low-grade gliomas and stopping them from coming back.
