  • There may be a suggestion of a trend, and there could be more cases occurring," said Dr. Leslie Robison, associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Minnesota Medical School in Minneapolis, who is participating in a national study of leukemia in children. (nytimes.com)
  • chromosome
  • A small subset of children with ALL possess the Philadelphia chromosome (identified over 50 years ago in Philadelphia). (chop.edu)
  • Patients with ALL who possess this chromosome are at a higher risk for poor outcomes than children who have ALL without this chromosome. (chop.edu)
  • When a recent study on the genomes of children with high-risk ALL was performed, a new subset, called Philadelphia chromosome-like (Ph-like) ALL was identified. (chop.edu)
  • The abnormalities present in leukemia cells of patients with Ph-like ALL are highly similar to those of patients with Philadelphia chromosome positive ALL, but these cases do not contain BCR-ABL1 fusion. (chop.edu)
  • remission
  • Umbilical cord blood stem cells (UCBSC) were used to reconstitute hematopoiesis following myeloablative therapy in a 13-month-old infant with acute nonlymphocytic leukemia (ANLL):FAB-M5 who had failed to sustain a chemotherapeutic remission. (northwestern.edu)

  • For brain cancer, the figure increased to a rate of 3.4 cases for every 100,000 children in 1988 from 2.3 cases per 100,000 children 15 years earlier. (nytimes.com)
