  • Published —
Previous studies addressing the specific treatment plan for pediatric patients with Wilms Tumor found that in those who had favorable histology Wilms tumor had adverse outcomes associated to the standard treatment. This study compared the improved event-free survival (EFS) of Vincristine, dactinomycin and doxorubicin alone or in combination with cyclophosphamide and etoposide plus radiation therapy for pediatric patients with histology favorable tumors ( stage I-IV)
