Abstract

Thirty-eight children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia were treated with the BFM regimen. Thirty-six (94.7%) achieved complete remission (CR). Twenty 58.8%) of 34 evaluable patients are in continuous complete remission (CCR) at a median follow-up of 33 (range 19-81) months. Long-term disease-free survival was better in the 2-9 years age group (83%) when compared to the 10-14 years group (43%) (P < .05).
