Randomization of Cytarabine Monotherapy Versus Standard-of-Care Vinblastine/Prednisone For Frontline Treatment of Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (TXCH LCH0115)
The purpose of this research study is to compare previously used vinblastine/prednisone to single therapy with cytarabine for LCH. We will evaluate the utility of an imaging study called a positron emission tomography (PET) scan to more accurately assess areas of LCH involvement not otherwise seen in other imaging studies as well as response to therapy. We also want to identify if genetic and other biomarkers (special proteins in patient's blood and in patient's cancer) relate to the response of patients LCH to study treatment.
