Multidrug resistance gene 1 polymorphisms in pediatric patients with leukemia at a national referral hospital in Indonesia

[ 2 ]. The most common malignancy in the pediatric population worldwide is acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). ALL is a heterogeneous group of leukemias that result from the clonal proliferation of cancerous lymphoblasts in bone marrow, and in secondary lymphoid organs. Children 1–10 years old are at particular risk of developing ALL. The overall cure rate is approximately 80% [ 3 ]. The Indonesian Paediatric Oncology Foundation stated that 2%-3% cancer cases in Indonesia occur in children [ 4 ]. Based on Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital data from 2000-2006, there were

Disseminated Fusarium Infections in Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia


Fusarium is a ubiquitous fungal species found in soil and water. While fusarium can cause localized infection in healthy individuals, it most commonly affects those with compromised immune systems, particularly those with prolonged neutropenia. The morality rate of systemic infection approaches one-hundred percent. Here we present two cases of disseminated fusarium infection in two patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) along with review of literatures regarding prophylaxis and treatment.

Pharmacogenomic markers of glucocorticoid response in the initial phase of remission induction therapy in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Introduction Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common hematological and overall malignancy in pediatrics, accounting for around 30% of all childhood cancers and around 80% of all childhood leukemias. It is one of the pediatric malignancies with the highest cure rate, exceeding 80%, when treated with standardized protocols like the European standard, the Berlin-Frankfurt-Munster (BFM) protocol. 1 , 2 , 3 However, there is still more than 10% of patients with unfavorable outcome. The treatment of childhood ALL is based on risk stratification

Expression pattern of long non-coding RNA growth arrest-specific 5 in the remission induction therapy in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Introduction Among pediatric malignancies, acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common hematological and overall malignancy, contributing to 30% of diagnosed cancers and around 80% of all pediatric leukemias. Pediatric ALL is a malignancy with one of the highest cure rates, achieved by treating the patients with the internationally recognised treatment protocols like the Berlin-Frankfurt-Munster (BFM) protocol ( 1 , 2 , 3 ). Risk stratification of ALL is para mount in choosing the effective treatment strategy. Hence, risk stratification is already
