Summary
Brief summary
Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy in treating patients
with newly diagnosed metastatic Ewing's sarcoma or primitive neuroectodermal tumor. Drugs
used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop
growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.
