Brief Summary:
This study aims to use clinical and biological characteristics of acute leukemias to screen for patient eligibility for available pediatric leukemia sub-trials. Testing bone marrow and blood from patients with leukemia that has come back after treatment or is difficult to treat may provide information about the patient's leukemia that is important when deciding how to best treat it, and may help doctors find better ways to diagnose and treat leukemia in children, adolescents, and young adults.

Recurrent Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Recurrent Acute Myeloid Leukemia Recurrent B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Recurrent Mixed Phenotype Acute Leukemia Recurrent T Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia Refractory Mixed Phenotype Acute Leukemia Therapy-Related Acute Myeloid Leukemia Procedure: Biospecimen Collection

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To utilize clinical and biological characteristics of acute leukemias to screen for patient eligibility for available phase I/II Pediatric Acute Leukemia (PedAL) sub-trials.

II. To maintain a longitudinal and comprehensive registry from relapse in children and young adults with recurrent and refractory leukemia.

OUTLINE:

Patients undergo collection of blood and/or bone marrow samples at baseline, end of treatment cycle(s), and at relapse/refractory disease status (if applicable).

After completion of study, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months for 3 years.

Estimated Enrollment : 960 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Pediatric Acute Leukemia (PedAL) Screening Trial - Developing New Therapies for Relapsed Leukemias
Actual Study Start Date : November 30, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : January 30, 2026
Estimated Study Completion Date : January 30, 2026


Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Observational (biospecimen collection)
Patients undergo collection of blood and/or bone marrow samples at baseline, end of treatment cycle(s), and at relapse/refractory disease status (if applicable).
Procedure: Biospecimen Collection
Undergo collection of blood and/or bone marrow samples
Other Names:
  • Biological Sample Collection
  • Biospecimen Collected




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of patients with identification of a priori specified genomic and immunophenotypic targets who enroll on a sub-trial [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    The proportion will be calculated as the percent of eligible patients who are identified to have an a priori specified genomic or immunophenotypic target and who enroll on at least one of the sub-trials. The corresponding confidence interval will be constructed.


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Blood, bone marrow
