Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Treatment: Drugs - becatecarin

Experimental: Arm I - Patients with solid tumors are stratified according to tumor histology (neuroblastoma vs Ewing's sarcoma [closed to accrual as of 5/19/03]/peripheral primative neuroectodermal tumor [PNET] vs osteosarcoma [closed to accrual as of 5/19/03] vs rhabdomyosarcoma vs non-Hodgkin's lymphoma vs other solid tumors). Patients with CNS tumors are stratified according to tumor histology (medulloblastoma/PNET vs ependymoma vs brainstem glioma vs other CNS tumors).
Patients receive rebeccamycin analogue IV over 1 hour on day 1. Treatment continues every 21 days for a total of 16 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Summary
Brief summary
Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of rebeccamycin analogue in treating children who
have solid tumors or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to
stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
