Trial Information

Induction Chemotherapy

- Vincristine (VCR): 1.5 mg/m2 (maximum dose 2 mg) iv days 1, 8, 15 and 22

- daunorubicin (DNR) 45 mg/m2 i.v. days 1, 8, 15 and 22

- Prednisone (PDN): 60 mg/m2 per day, i.v. or p.o., days 1-27

- Imatinib 600 mg p.o. from day 1 until the beginning of the consolidation. Important
Note: The administration of imatinib be initiated as soon as the outcome of cytogenetic
and molecular study, which will be known under normal conditions during prophase

Patients should be in RC and shall be a minimum of 2 weeks of finding it. Patients did not
discontinue treatment with imatinib during this period. Minimum counts to start the
consolidation are: neutrophils> 1x109 / L and platelets> 100x109 / L.

- Mercaptopurine (MP) 50 mg/m2, p.o. days 1 to 7, 28 to 35 and 56 to 63

- MTX: 1.5 g/m2, i.v. continuous infusion for 24 hours on days 1, 28 and 56.

- VP-16: 100 mg/m2 every 12 hours, i.v. (1 hour infusion) on days 14 and 42

- ARA-C: 1000 mg/m2 every 12 hours, i.v. (3-hour infusion) days 14-15 and 42-43

- triple intrathecal treatment days 1, 28 and 56

- Imatinib 600 mg / d po, from day 1 to 15 days before the TPH.

During consolidation therapy is recommended in primary prophylaxis with G-CSF or found
neutropenia (<0.5 x109 / L). This factor was administered daily until the neutrophil count
is > 1x109 / L in two consecutive measurements. Alternatively, PEG-filgrastim can be used
(eg 16 and 44), at the discretion of each center

Allogenic THP or Autologous TPH

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients with Ph (BCR/ABL) positive de novo < 55 years old (it is advisable to
include patients over 55 years LAL07OPH protocol).

normal laboratory renal function: serum creatinine < 2 mg/dL or clearance creatinine

normal: ventricular EF > 50%, absence of severe chronic respiratory disease. In the
event that alterations are secondary to the disease is at the discretion of the
investigator to determine if the patient can be included in the trial.
