We categorized the relapse treatment into four groups: ALL-REZ BFM protocols ( 90, 95/96 and ), NOPHO ALL and ALL HR arms. In a prospective and blinded study, the ALL-REZ BFM Study Group .. In the subsequent trial ALL-REZ BFM , this level of MRD after. n = 46; ALL-REZ BFM 95/96, n = 46; ALL-REZ BFM , n = 9). Six/ (3%) cases received palliative treatment for first relapse, and 71/

Allogeneic SCT with a rezz donor is currently the preferred therapeutic option for these children after the CR2[ 20262933384269 ]. T-cell depletion can prevent overwhelming GvHD allowing the graft to contain large numbers of stem cells.

Genetic engineering to endow T cells with receptors that bind leukaemia cell surface antigens such as Re or CD22, is another promising adoptive therapy approach. Results and factors influencing outcome after fully haploidentical hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in children with very high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia: Equivalent post-relapse survival for patients undergoing different intensity regimens at primary diagnosis.

Outcome after first relapse in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia – lessons from the United Kingdom R2 trial. With improved techniques allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant HSCT has become a relatively safe treatment but fbm not necessary for all patients as postremission therapy.

Controversies, current lines of investigation and possible future directions are discussed.

Adding up-front or relapse protocol to the adjusted model did not generate significant HRs or result in any notable change in the HRs of the other co-variates in the models. In extramedullary relapses, a clear distinction also has to be made for early relapses vs late relapses.

Current approach to relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia in children

Complete remission after blinatumomab-induced donor T-cell activation in three pediatric patients with post-transplant relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia.


These results suggest that age at initial diagnosis is a prognostic factor in relapsed ALL, just as it is for newly diagnosed disease[ 29 ]. In case of unilateral testicular relapse, excluding a subclinical involvement of the contralateral testis is recommended Einsiedel, JCO.

We hypothesize that thorough analysis of prognostic factors, validation of the current risk stratification and comparison of treatment modalities could be helpful in improving treatment for relapsed childhood ALL. Outcome of treatment in children with hypodiploid acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Genomic analysis of the clonal origins of relapsed qll lymphoblastic leukemia.

ALL-REZ BFM–the consecutive trials for children with relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

We compared the cumulative incidence of second events between the two relapse periods and found a reduction of second relapses in the later period Figure 1C. Despite improvements in the up-front therapy, survival after relapse is still relatively poor, especially for high-risk relapses. Recurrent ALL is a relatively common disease for pediatric oncologists, and given the relatively high prevalence of newly diagnosed ALL, relapsed ALL still has a higher incidence than the new diagnoses of many of the most common pediatric malignancies and represents one of the most common childhood cancer.

How I treat relapsed childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia. In the case of clinical unilateral or bilateral testicular involvement and no resection 24 Gy local irradiation is generally recommended[ 2225263336 ]. Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia; BFM: HSCT is not required in children with isolated extramedullary and late BM relapses with rapid response to induction therapy measured by molecular techniques minimal residual disease, MRD but absolutely indicated in patients with early BM relapses and systemic relapses of T-cell ALL.

Therefore, better consolidation methods are needed without increasing the burden of treatment toxicities. Before relapse, the median duration of the first complete remission CR1 has been reported to be around 2.


While some studies report comparable results with both SCT and chemotherapy[ 2657 ] others argue that the outcome of patients undergoing a transplant is poorer, and that SCT in late relapses is not beneficial[ 38 ]. Received Jun 4; Accepted Oct Results with umbilical cord transplantation are comparable to that obtained with unrelated donor SCT[ 70 ]. Log rank test was used for comparing survival across groups.

In this scenario, donor- vs -recipient NK alloreactivity has emerged as a crucial factor for the outcome of haplo-SCT. According to these findings, patients classified as being intermediate risk with conventional clinical parameters could be further classified into a very HR subgroup if MRD proves to persist at a high level until transplantation[ 61 ].

For patients with insufficient response innovative therapies such as small molecules or targeted immunological or pharmacological approaches are urgently required.

A case control study of the International BFM study group. Relatively few studies of the long-term outcome after relapsed childhood ALL have been published. Moreover, relapsed ALL accounts for more deaths from cancer in children than any other malignancy and represents a major cause of death among children[ 1719 – 23 ].

In the first adjusted model, time to relapse worse if earlier bffm, site of relapse worse if involving the bone marrowage ten years or over at primary diagnosis, unfavorable cytogenetics and Down syndrome were all statistically significant independent prognostic factors.
