Treatment: Surgery - Psychosocial Assessment and Care

Ancillary/Correlative (neurocognitive assessment, biomarkers)) - Patients complete neurocognitive tests to assess thinking, memory, attention, and concentration. The baseline test is administered during the consolidation phase of chemotherapy and further tests are done at 1 year from baseline and 1 year after* the completion of study therapy.
Patients undergo blood and cerebrospinal fluid collection periodically for biomarker, genotypic polymorphisms, and pharmacokinetic analysis. Patients undergo MRI diffusion-tensor imaging to correlate imaging with neuropsychological outcomes.

Summary
Brief summary
This clinical trial is looking at brain function in young patients receiving methotrexate for
acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Learning about the long-term effects of methotrexate on brain
function may help doctors plan cancer treatment.
