International Phase 3 Trial in Philadelphia Chromosome-Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (Ph+ALL) Testing Imatinib in Combination With Two Different Cytotoxic Chemotherapy Backbones
This randomized phase III trial studies how well imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
The purpose of this study is to compare disease-free survival (DFS) of standard risk pediatric Philapdelphia chromosome (Ph)+ acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) treated with continuous imatinib mesylate (imatinib) combined with either a high-risk Children's Oncology Group (COG)/Berlin-Frankfurt-Munster (BFM) ALL chemotherapy backbone or the more intensive European (Es)PhALL chemotherapy backbone.
Participants will not be paid for their participation.
