Children with acute lymphocytic leukemia can be apparently cured today. The subclassification of ALL in childhood as “high risk” and “standard risk” ALL by means of a determination of immunologic and clinical parameters is of increasing importance. This classification could become the basis for a risk-oriented individual therapy. We present here the current results attained in the treatment of childhood ALL by our Pediatric Hematology and Oncology working group involving 13 treatment centers of the German Democratic Republic.
