Treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (referred to as “ALL”) is the most frequent type of blood cancer found in children and teenagers. The disease originates in the bone marrow, where normal blood formation is disrupted by an uncontrolled proliferation of immature blood cells. These immature cells, called leukemia cells, supress the healthy blood cells preventing them from performing their vital functions. Without therapy, ALL leads to severe disease and organ dysfunction with a fatal outcome.
