A Study Comparing Two Carboplatin Containing Regimens for Children and Young Adults With Previously Untreated Low Grade Glioma

What is the purpose of this trial?

Primary Objective:

  • To compare the progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with previously untreated low grade glioma (LGG) among patients with and without NF-1 utilizing two carboplatin containing regimens; carboplatin/vincristine (SOC) versus single agent carboplatin(research).

Secondary Objectives:

  • To compare the quality of life of children and young adults with LGG treated with carboplatin versus carboplatin and vincristine
  • To estimate tumor response rates to each regimen of chemotherapy.
  • To determine toxicity of each regimen.
  • To assess the associations that BRAF mutations have on clinical outcomes.
  • To assess aberrations found through whole exome and RNA sequencing and correlate with clinical outcome.
