1. To determine, as measured by the 3-year progression-free survival (PFS) rate and patterns of failure, whether dose and volume of irradiation can be safely reduced to 30.6 Gy whole ventricular field irradiation (WVI) plus 23.4 Gy primary site boost instead of 36 Gy craniospinal irradiation (CSI) plus primary site boost in the subgroup of children and young adults (ages 3 to Ü 21 years) with localized non-
germinomatous germ cell tumor (NGGCT) who have a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and tumor marker criteria (CSF and serum) for confirmed complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) to induction chemotherapy and negative serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) tumor markers OR in patients who have less than a PR after induction chemotherapy with negative tumor markers who undergo a second-look surgery and are found to have only mature teratoma, residual scar or fibrosis and fit the definition of CR/PR after second-look surgery.

2. To determine, as measured by the 3-year PFS rate and patterns of failure, whether simplified chemotherapy followed by dose-reduced radiation therapy is effective for treating children and young adults (ages 3 to Ü 21 years) with localized primary central nervous system (CNS) germinoma who present with serum and/or CSF human chorionic gonadotropin-beta (hCG Â) Ü50 mIU/ml

3. To prospectively evaluate and longitudinally model the cognitive, social, and behavioral functioning of children and young adults who are treated with reduced radiation dose and volume of irradiation in Stratum 1 (NGGCT) and with dose-reduced radiation therapy in Stratum 2 (Germinoma) using the ALTE07C1 protocol. This objective will be assessed independently for the two strata.

4. To estimate the PFS and overall survival (OS) distributions of patients with NGGCT treated with 30.6Gy WVI and involved field focal (IFR) boost to 54Gy.

5.To estimate the PFS and OS distributions of
localized germinoma patients who present with
a) serum and/or CSF hCGÂ Ü50mIU/ml and b) serum and/or CSF hCG
Â> 50mIU/ml and Ü100mIU/ml.

N0577: Phase III Intergroup Study of Radiotherapy with Concomitant and Adjuvant Temozolomide versus Radiotherapy with Adjuvant PCV Chemotherapy in Patients with 1p/19q Co-deleted Anaplastic Glioma

To determine whether patients who receive radiotherapy with concomitant temozolomide followed by adjuvant temozolomide have a marginally better p rogression free survival (PFS) than patients who receive radiotherapy followed by PCV chemotherapy.
To determine whether patients who receive temozolomide (TMZ) alone have a
significantly longer time to progression (neurocognitive, clinical or radiographic progression) than patients who receive radiotherapy with concomitant TMZ followed by adjuvant TMZ or radiotherapy followed by PCV chemotherapy
