Nobuko Hijiya, MD, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago
ALL is the most common cancer in children and is among the most curable of the pediatric malignancies. Many clinical, biological, genetic, and molecular features have been identified as having prognostic significance in the outcome of patients with ALL. Prognostic features play a critical role in directing therapy for ALL and as scientific and treatment advances are made, this area of investigation changes rapidly. This session will discuss the importance of prognostic factors that may influence the treatments used for patients with ALL, as well as review treatment protocols designed to reduce toxicity while preserving efficacy for ALL patients.
- Identify prognostic factors that influence treatment and outcomes for patients with ALL.
