New treatment options for children with relapsed and recurrent brain and solid tumours is limited. Recent research shows that many of these tumours have a general change in their DNA (methylation), and altering methylation may stop the tumours. This international trial will test the safety of treating children with a methylation inhibitor (azacitidine) and a standard chemotherapy drug (carboplatin), in the first step of exploring this new treatment option.
