Sodium Thiosulfate in Preventing Hearing Loss in Young Patients Receiving Cisplatin for Newly Diagnosed Germ Cell Tumor, Hepatoblastoma, Medulloblastoma, Neuroblastoma, Osteosarcoma, or Other Malignancy
RATIONALE: Sodium thiosulfate may reduce or prevent hearing loss in young patients receiving cisplatin for cancer. It is not yet known whether sodium thiosulfate is more effective than no additional treatment in preventing hearing loss.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying sodium thiosulfate to see how well it works in preventing hearing loss in young patients receiving cisplatin for newly diagnosed germ cell tumor, hepatoblastoma, medulloblastoma, neuroblastoma, osteosarcoma, or other malignancy.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.

- Creatinine clearance or radioisotope glomerular filtration rate ≥ 70mL/min OR serum
creatinine between 0.4 and 1.7 mg/dL, based on age and gender

- Not pregnant or nursing
- Negative pregnancy test (if patient has child-bearing capacity)
- Fertile patients must use effective contraception
- No known hypersensitivity to sodium thiosulfate or other thiol agents (e.g.,
amifostine trihydrate, N-acetylcysteine, MESNA, or captopril)
PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY:
- See Disease Characteristics
- No prior platinum-based chemotherapy (cisplatin or carboplatin)
- Other prior chemotherapy allowed
- Prior cranial radiotherapy (e.g., for treatment of medulloblastoma) allowed provided
normal hearing is documented after completion of radiotherapy and before enrollment
and administration of cisplatin chemotherapy
- At least 6 months since prior hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
- No evidence of graft-versus-host disease
- No concurrent enrollment on another COG clinical trial for treatment of the cancer.
- Concurrent enrollment on a non-COG clinical trial (e.g., Head start) allowed.
- Cranial irradiation after the completion of all systemic chemotherapy allowed provided
post end-of-treatment audiometry is completed prior to beginning irradiation.
- Concurrent radiotherapy to extracranial sites allowed.
