Risk-Based Therapy in Treating Younger Patients With Newly Diagnosed Liver Cancer


Childhood Hepatoblastoma | Stage I Childhood Liver Cancer | Stage II Childhood Liver Cancer | Stage III Childhood Liver Cancer | Stage IV Childhood Liver Cancer

What is the purpose of this trial?

This phase III trial studies the side effects and how well risk-based therapy works in treating younger patients with newly diagnosed liver cancer. Surgery, chemotherapy drugs (cancer fighting medicines), and when necessary liver transplant are the main current treatments for hepatoblastoma. The stage of the cancer is one factor used to decide the best treatment. Treating patients according to the risk group they are in may help get rid of the cancer, keep it from coming back, and decrease the side effects of chemotherapy.
