Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing
so they stop growing or die. Giving more than one drug may kill more cancer cells. It is not
yet known which combination chemotherapy regimen is more effective in treating childhood
acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is comparing different combination chemotherapy
regimens to see how well they work in treating children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
