Monoclonal Antibody Therapy in Treating Children With Metastatic Neuroblastoma in Second Remission
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of monoclonal antibody in treating children with metastatic neuroblastoma in second remission.
