Abstract

Event-free survival (EFS) of newly diagnosed patients with B-Precursor was reviewed. Very high risk patients who might be eligible for a clinical trial that included bone marrow transplant were defined. We conclude that such studies are feasible, provided that problems of informed consent and imperfect HLA matches can be overcome.
