ABSTRACT

The authors studied the outcome of a cohort of pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients (33 children and adolescence) diagnosed and treated conforming to modern Chemotherapy Protocols (ALL ICBFM 2002, Interfant 06) in a single Center – Pediatric Clinic, Fundeni Clinical Institute, Bucharest, Romania.

They analyzed the factors which determine the prognosis and the outcome of these patients in the course of multi-agent systemic chemotherapy to stand at the base of these Protocols: initial age, initial leukocyte count, blasts immunophenotype, cytogenetic and molecular abnormalities, initial response to cortisone, risk groups, time to obtain the complet remission, etc. Among the factors they discussed, a great value was proven to have the minimal residual disease (MRD) determination in certain check points of Protocols and revaluation of patients risk conforming to MRD values.

Using the modern Protocols and continuously watching the evolution on therapy enable the authors to obtain results close to those of European and North American Pediatric Hematology Oncology Centers: OS 90.9% by 40 Mo and EFS 72.7% at the end of the same period of time.

Keywords: children and adolescents, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, prognosis, minimal residual disease
