Protocol

SJRET6: Protocol for the Study and Treatment of Participants with Intraocular Retinoblastoma

Diseases

Phase I Studies : Retinoblastoma

Description

Retinoblastoma is a rare cancer of the retina of the eye. Researchers at St. Jude want to find out if the response to treatment can be improved by giving chemotherapy directly to the eye with the first 2 cycles of treatment in children with retinoblastoma who have one or both eyes with advanced tumors. Researchers also want to learn more about the genetics and biology of retinoblastoma, and how these tumors develop (called tumorigenesis). To achieve this goal, we will study tumor samples from children who take part in this study, when part of their treatment requires enucleation (removal of the eye). Many children with retinoblastoma will not have an eye removed and will not take part in the biology research, but they can still receive treatment on this study.
