abstract

  • Young adults with ALL treated on CCG protocols have a 6-year EFS of approximately 60%. This is similar to the EFS for patients 10-15+ years of age at diagnosis treated on the same protocols and better than EFS results reported from most adult trials. Young adults with AML had a slightly inferior outcome compared with younger children.
