Childhood Central Nervous System Embryonal Tumors Treatment

Recurrent Childhood Central Nervous System Embryonal Tumors

A recurrent childhood central nervous system (CNS) embryonal tumor is a tumor that recurs (comes back) after being treated. Childhood CNS embryonal tumors most often recur within 18 months after treatment but may come back many years later. Recurrent childhood CNS embryonal tumors may come back in the same place as the original tumor or in a different place in the brain or spinal cord.

Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with recurrent childhood brain tumor. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.
