Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Treatment-related toxicity event rate during the ATRA-including consolidation treatment [ Time Frame: At the end of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Event Free Survival, Molecular and Hematological Disease-Free and Overall Survival in each risk group [ Time Frame: At the end of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The rates of molecular remission, after consolidation, in each risk group [ Time Frame: At the end of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Induction morbidity and mortality after the inclusion of the prophylactic measures for the ATRA Syndrome and hemorrhagic complications [ Time Frame: At the end of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The overall toxicity of induction, consolidation, and maintenance chemotherapy in each risk group [ Time Frame: At the end of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The impact on survival of a "total" treatment approach for APL including molecular evaluation of minimal residual disease and salvage tehrapy administration at the time of molecular or hematological relapse [ Time Frame: At the end of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 600
Study Start Date: May 2000

Ages Eligible for Study:   1 Year to 60 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age >= 1 years and < 61 years
  • Morphologic diagnosis of APL
  • PS <= 3
  • Presence in leukemic cells at diagnosis of t(15;17), and/or PML/RARa rearrangement by RT-PCR. T
  • The presence of additional cytogenetic lesions is not considered an exclusion criterion

  • Prior antileikemic chemotherapy for APL
  • Presence of a concomitant malignant neoplasm, except basal cell carcinoma Concurrent treatment with cytotoxic chemotherapy or radiotherapy
  • Oteher progressive malignant disease. However, secondary acute promyelocytic leukemia following "cured" Hodgkin's disease or otehr cured malignancies may be included, as well as secondary leukemias following other exposure to alkylating agents or radiation for other reasons
