Intensive Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy in Treating Young Patients Undergoing Surgical Resection for High-Risk Hepatoblastoma

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Giving chemotherapy drugs before surgery may shrink the tumor so that it can be removed.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well neoadjuvant chemotherapy works in treating young patients who are undergoing surgical resection for high-risk hepatoblastoma.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
