With the current treatment modalities, outcome is heavily age dependent in adult acute lymphocytic leukaemia. For the age groups under 30 years, 30-60 years, and over 60 years, complete remission rates are 90%, 81%, and 52%, and overall survival at 3 years is 58%, 38%, and 12%, respectively. Larson RA.
Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (also called ALL or ALL leukemia) is a rare cancer of the blood cells. Around 800 people in the UK are diagnosed with ALL each year. It can develop in people of any age, but is more common in children and young people, and in people over the age of 75. It affects.

In adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) complete remission (CR) rates of 80-85% and leukemia-free survival (LFS) rates of 30-40% can be achieved (Table 1 ). Intensified consolidation, particularly with high-dose methotrexate (HDM) and high-dose cytarabine (HDAC), could be one reason for the improved outcome in recent studies.
