More than 80% of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) can be cured through intensive and risk-oriented chemotherapy protocols. Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is considered beneficial for approximately 10% of the patients who are at veryhigh risk at frontline therapy and for the majority of patients after relapse. Consequently, it is critically important to identify prognostic factors in this group of patients in order to tailor risk-adapted therapy. In this retrospective study, we aimed to assess the prognostic role of minimal residual disease (MRD) before HSCT and at different time points after transplantation in children with ALL.

Abstract

More than 80% of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) can be cured through intensive and risk-oriented chemotherapy protocols. Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is considered beneficial for approximately 10% of the patients who are at veryhigh risk at frontline therapy and for the majority of patients after relapse. Consequently, it is critically important to identify prognostic factors in this group of patients in order to tailor risk-adapted therapy. In this retrospective study, we aimed to assess the prognostic role of minimal residual disease (MRD) before HSCT and at different time points after transplantation in children with ALL.
