Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing
so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug and giving the drugs in different
combinations may kill more cancer cells.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of standard combination
chemotherapy treatment with more intensive combination chemotherapy in treating children with
acute lymphocytic leukemia.
