The Dr's at CHOP are excellent and will be fully versed in the latest treatment protocols as part of the Children's Oncology Group. As your child is enrolled in an open trial I am sure they are receiving the best and most up too date treatment. The long term survival rates are adversely affected by lymph node involvement but there are many other factors to consider when giving prognostic information.
