Isotretinoin With or Without Monoclonal Antibody Ch14.18, Aldesleukin, and Sargramostim Following Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Neuroblastoma


Disseminated Neuroblastoma | Localized Resectable Neuroblastoma | Localized Unresectable Neuroblastoma | Regional Neuroblastoma | Stage 4S Neuroblastoma

What is the purpose of this trial?

This partially randomized phase III trial studies isotretinoin with monoclonal antibody Ch14.18, aldesleukin, and sargramostim to see how well it works compared to isotretinoin alone following stem cell transplant in treating patients with neuroblastoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as isotretinoin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as monoclonal antibody Ch14.18, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumors to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them. Aldesleukin and sargramostim may stimulate a person's white blood cells to kill cancer cells. It is not yet known if chemotherapy is more effective with or without monoclonal antibody Ch14.18, aldesleukin, and sargramostim following stem cell transplant in treating neuroblastoma.
