Tumours of the brain and of the central nervous system (CNS) are the most common solid tumours in children. Amongst these, gliomas are the most frequent, although this term covers different histological subtypes, the most frequent being astrocytoma. However, they are rare diseases of low prevalence.
The interest in the cisplatin/irinotecan combination in brain tumours motivated a previous pilot study at our hospital, with encouraging results. This experience, together with the need for new strategies for high-risk pediatric gliomas has motivated the conduct of this study.

Experimental: Irinotecan plus Cisplatin combination
This is a open-label study with only one treatment experimental arm. The patients will be treated, in a weekly basis, with 30 mg/m2 of cisplatino plus 65 mg/m2 of irinotecán (one cycle), until a total of 16 cycles.
Drug: Combination of two marketed drugs (irinotecan and cisplatin)
Irinotecan and Cisplatin will be administered weekly ambulatory, intravenous (iv), until to reach a total of 16 cycles. Cisplatin is administered first and then Irinotecan. Cisplatin 30 mg/m2/d (iv) in one hour,followed by Irinotecan 65 mg/m2/d iv in one hour. There is a one-week rest period every 4 cycles. The total treatment length including 16 cycles + rest weeks is 19 weeks.
- The primary objective of this study is to determine the safety and objective response rate (ORR). [ Time Frame: Clinical signs, AEs, SAEs, ARs, SARs, Imaging and Audiometry changes: from baseline to FUP month 12. ]The primary objective is to determine the safety and objective response rate (ORR), defined according to the criteria given in the CPMP/EWP/205/95/Rev.3/Corr.2, of irinotecan + cisplatin in pediatric patients with gliomas, through clinical signs and MR. The primary variable is the ORR.
- Duration of the response. [ Time Frame: Clinical signs: baseline and every week (w1to21)+FUP month 3,6,9,12. Imaging (RM Baseline+w10&20+FUP month 3,6,9,12/PET: Baseline+w20). ]The secondary variable has the aim to assess the duration of response by measuring the time to progression (TP), the time to treatment failure (TF) and overall survival (OS).
- Safety of the combined Irinotecan+Cisplatin therapy [ Time Frame: Clinical signs, AEs, SAEs, ARs, SARs: baseline and every week (w1to21)+FUP month 3,6,9,12.Blood (hemo/chem):baseline&every week (w 1 to 21, except w10). Audiometry: baseline+w20+m6+m12. ]The secondary variable aims to assess the safety of combined Irinotecan+Cisplatin therapy in study population (children and teens. Treatment safety will be assessed according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events v3.0, (CTCAE).
- Possible associations of gene MGMT promoter and microsatellites instability with reference to response to study treatment [ Time Frame: Clinical signs: baseline and every week (w1to21)+FUP month 3,6,9,12. Imaging (RM Baseline+w10&20+FUP month 3,6,9,12/PET: Baseline+w20). Genomic study: baseline (week-14 to-9) ]The secondary variable aims to search if there could be any possible association between silent MGMT and the inestability of microsatellites with refernce to the response reached with the combined Irinotecan plus Cisplatin therapy in paediatrics glioma.
- To assess the applicability and efficacy of volumetric measurements as a treatment tumor-response indicator. [ Time Frame: Clinical signs: baseline (day-14to-9) and every week (w1to21)+FUP month 3,6,9,12. Imaging (RM Baseline day-14to -9 +w10&20+FUP month 3,6,9,12. ]The aim of this secondary outcome measure is to assess the applicability and efficacy of the volumetric study measurement during the radiology assessment with reference to the tumour response to the study treatment.
- To assess the applicability and efficacy of metabolic study by PET-methionine [ Time Frame: Clinical signs: baseline (day-14to-9) and every week (w1to21)+FUP month 3,6,9,12. PET: Baseline day-14to -9 + w20). ]The aim of this secondary outcome measure is to assess the applicability and efficacy of the metabolic study by PET-methionine
