Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
bone marrow, peripheral blood

Estimated Enrollment: 400
Study Start Date: April 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
In order to know the genomic evolution of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia, we will collect bone marrow (10c.c.) at diagnosis, remission and relapse. We will do the following genes in addition to gene-chip including IKZF1,ETV6, EBF1, NR3C1, RAG1/G2, TCF3, BTLA, PAX5,LEF1, ERG and VPREB1.We will study the gene dosages and degree of methylation. The estimated patients numbers will be 300-400. Then we will correlate these data with patients'age, white blood cell count at diagnosis, cytogenetic abnormalities, response to the chemotherapy and prognosis.
