Treatment: Drugs - prednisone
Treatment: Drugs - procarbazine hydrochloride

Treatment: Drugs - vincristine sulfate
Treatment: Other - radiation therapy

Experimental: BEACOPP therapy - Patients receive 4 cycles of BEACOPP therapy. Drugs utilized in this regimen include Bleomycin (B), Etoposide (E), Doxorubicin (A), Cyclophosphamide (C), Vincristine (O), Prednisone (P) and Procarbazine (P). Each cycle lasts 21 days and is characterized by intravenous pulses of Etoposide (Days 0-2), Doxorubicin (Day 0), Cyclophosphamide (Day 0), Bleomycin (Day 7), Vincristine (Day 7). Seven days of oral procarbazine (Days 0-6) and 14 days of oral prednisone (Days 0-13) are given during each cycle.
Growth factor support with Filgrastim (G-CSF) is given by subcutaneous injection daily beginning Day 8. Response will then be determined and stratification for further treatment.

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 may kill more cancer cells.
Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage cancer cells. Giving radiation therapy
after chemotherapy may be an effective treatment for Hodgkin's disease.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy and radiation
therapy in treating children who have previously untreated stage II, stage III, or stage IV
Hodgkin's disease.
