International Randomised Controlled Trial for the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Ewing’s Sarcoma Family of Tumours
Automatically Closed · 2018 until 2014
The objective of the induction/consolidation chemotherapy randomisation (R1) is to compare the VIDE strategy (VIDE induction and VAI/VAC/BuMel consolidation) with the VDC/IE strategy (compressed VDC/IE induction and IE/VC/Bu-Mel consolidation). The event-free survival (EFS) of the two chemotherapy regimens will be compared, and also the relative toxicity experienced by patients both before and after local control of the primary tumour.
The objective of the zoledronic acid randomisation (R2) is to determine whether the addition of zoledronic acid to consolidation chemotherapy, as assigned at R1, is associated with improved clinical outcome.
The objective of the biological studies associated with this trial is to identify informative prognostic biomarkers for assessment of disease status and response at diagnosis and throughout the disease course. Whether they are predictive of response to therapy and may be used to improve stratification of patients and whether they might predict those patients that may
