PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 87 children were tested at diagnosis for ITRT and for persistence of blasts in bone marrow at day 15 (BML15>0.5%) and were followed-up in long-term analysis.
RESULTS: The probability of disease-free survival (pDFS) was significantly better for patients with an ITRT profile showing sensitivity to prednisolone, vincristine, daunorubicin, and L-asparaginase. Patients with BML15>0.5% had higher ITRT for prednisolone, daunorubicin, L-asparaginase, and etoposide. Three factors had predictive impact for relapse: BML15>0.5%, ITRT for prednisolone and high combined ITRT profile for prednisolone, vincristine and L-asparaginase (PVA score).
CONCLUSION: Persistence of blasts in bone marrow at day 15, ITRT showing resistance to prednisolone and high PVA score were the strongest and comparable prognostic factors predicting relapse in childhood ALL.
