ACNS1123 Phase 2 Trial of Response-Based Radiation Therapy for Patients with Localized Central Nervous System Germ Cell Tumors (CNS GCT)
Drugs used as chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, etoposide, and ifosfamide work in different
ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from
dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays to kill tumor cells. Giving chemotherapy
with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. This phase II trial studies how well
chemotherapy and radiation therapy work in treating younger patients with newly diagnosed
central nervous system germ cell tumors.
