Treatment lasts 6-9 months and consists of alternating courses of 2 chemotherapeutic regimens: (1) vincristine, doxorubicin, and cyclophosphamide and (2) ifosfamide and etoposide. If there was no cure on any protocol but only reduction, more aggressive treatment should have been continued uninterrupted. Now when regrowth is there nothing lost in continuing again the treatment aggressively till complete cure is confirmed.
Usually, if the cancer cells have not spread to other parts of the body, up to 80% of the patients with Ewing’s sarcoma can be cured. However, if the tumor has spread, then the survival rate would be much lower.
