The purpose of this study is to investigate if intramuscular PEG-asparaginase administered either at six or two week intervals from day 92 until 8 months from diagnosis for patients with non-HR ALL will result in equal probability of Event Free Survival

Clinical Details

Official title: NOPHO Treatment Protocol for Children (1.0 - 17.9 Years of Age) and Young Adults(18.0-45.0 Years) With Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Intermittent Versus Continuous PEG-asparaginase for Asparagine Depletion

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Event Free Survival

Secondary outcome: Secondary Outcome Measures are toxicity (special focus on thrombosis, pancreatitis, and allergic reactions), the formation of silent antibodies, and the influence of antibody production on the EFS.

Detailed description: 20% of children with ALL still fails to be cured. The ALL-2008 protocol is a treatment and research protocol that aims to improve the overall outcome of Nordic children and adolescents with ALL in comparison with the ALL-2000 protocol and previous NOPHO protocols. The specific and primary objectives of the randomised study is: To test if intramuscular PEG-asparaginase administered either at six or two week intervals from day 92 until 8 months from diagnosis for patients with non-HR ALL will result in equal probability of EFS. As secondary endpoints asparaginase antibody production and toxicity including allergic reactions in the treatment-arms will be analysed


Minimum age: 1 Year. Maximum age: 45 Years. Gender(s): Both.
