This phase III trial is studying the side effects and how well giving dasatinib together with combination chemotherapy works in treating young patients with newly diagnosed acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Dasatinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving dasatinib together with combination chemotherapy may kill more cancer cells.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Feasibility of an intensified chemotherapeutic regimen incorporating dasatinib for treatment of children and adolescents with Ph+ ALL assessed by examining adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 131 weeks of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Feasibility will be defined as the ability to safely add dasatinib to the AALL0031 chemotherapy backbone either when given discontinuously (in 2-week periods followed by 1 to 2 weeks off) or continuously.

  • Toxicity of an intensified chemotherapeutic regimen incorporating dasatinib for treatment of children and adolescents with Ph+ ALL as assessed by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0 [ Time Frame: From the time of first treatment, assessed up to 7 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • EFS of patients with standard-risk disease treated with dasatinib in combination with intensified chemotherapy [ Time Frame: At 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    EFS curves will be constructed using the Kaplan-Meier life table method with standard errors computed using the method of Peto and Peto. A 1-sided 95% confidence interval for EFS will be constructed.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Contribution of dasatinib on minimal residual disease (MDR) after induction therapy [ Time Frame: At 5 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A sample of 120 on this study will give 80.5% power to detect a reduction of 18% (71% versus 53%) in the MRD positivity rate, due to the addition of 2 weeks of dasatinib during Induction (2 sample Z-test of proportions, 1-sided test, alpha=5%).

  • Impact on MRD levels at the end of consolidation block 2 [ Time Frame: At 11 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A 1-sample Z-test of proportions (alpha=5%, 1-sided test) will be used.

  • Overall EFS rate for the combined cohort of Standard- and High-Risk patients (who receive the final chosen dose of dasatinib) [ Time Frame: From the time entry on study to first event or date of last follow-up, assessed up to 7 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An event is defined as: Induction failure, relapse at any site, secondary malignancy, or death.
