on-daunorubicin arms, respectively. Measurements of minimal residual disease, in which a small number of leukemic cells remain during treatment, were also equivalent in the two study arms. These results demonstrate similar efficacy rates of treatment strategies for standard-risk ALL that do or do not include induction treatment with daunorubicin.

"Our study data have the potential to benefit children with ALL in two important ways," said Andre Baruchel, MD, lead author and Head of the Department of Pediatric Hematology at the Robert Debr University Hospital (Assistance Publique Hpitaux de Paris) in Paris. "First, we now have strong evidence that reducing the amount of chemotherapy initially administered to these children, who constitute the majority of ALL patients, does not negatively affect their immediate outcome. Perhaps more importantly, we know and anticipate that removing harmful chemotherapy from their treatment can help minimize their risk of experiencing heart damage later in life."

Dr. Baruchel will present this study in an oral presentation on Sunday, December 9, at 5:00 p.m. EST at the Georgia World Congress Center in Room A103, Level 1, Building A.

ATRA and Arsenic Trioxide (ATO) Versus ATRA and Idarubicin (AIDA) for Newly Diagnosed, Non High-Risk Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia (APL): Results of the Phase III, Prospective, Randomized, Intergroup APL0406 Study by the Italian-German Cooperative Groups Gimema-SAL-AMLSG [Abstract 6]

New research demonstrates the efficacy of the first curative treatment for acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) that does not include chemotherapy, marking an important step toward front-line use of targeted therapies for acute leukemia.

APL is an uncommon, yet aggressive, subtype of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in which there are too many immature white blood cells in the bone marrow
