Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

To be eligible to participate in this study, patients physician must have determined that they have LCH which is not treatable by surgical intervention or observation alone. If patient chooses to participate in this study, they will be assigned randomly (like flipping a coin) to one of two LCH chemotherapy treatment groups. A computer will randomly determine if they will begin to receive vinblastine/prednisone treatment or cytarabine treatment. Patient will have an equal chance (50%) to receive vinblastine/prednisone or to receive cytarabine. Neither the patient nor their doctor will be able to choose the group assignment, but the patient and their study doctor will know which treatment they are receiving. The patient will need to have the following tests, exams, or procedures. Most of these are part of regular cancer care and may be done even if the patient does not want to join this study. Some of them may not need to be repeated if they have had them done recently. The patient's doctor will tell them which ones they need to repeat.
Experimental: Cytarabine ("experimental") arm
Experimental: Vinblastine/prednisone ("standard") arm
Drug: - Cytarabine
Cytarabine 100 mg/m^2/day IV for five consecutive days. This five-day cycle will be repeated every 21 days for a total of four cycles for all patients regardless of response. Each new cycle may not begin until absolute neutrophil count (ANC) is ≥ 750/mcL and platelet count is ≥ 75,000/mcL.
Drug: - Vinblastine/prednisone
Vinblastine 6 mg/m^2/dose IV push weekly Prednisone (or prednisolone) 20 mg/m2/dose by mouth twice a day
