This development was once established by way of the 2 consecutive multicenter reviews, AML-BFM-78 and -83, within which nearly exact prolonged multi drug regimes of che­ motherapy have been administered for 8 weeks and up via years upkeep. the most distinction within the moment examine was once the addition of an eight-day in depth in­ duction path. because of this new aspect, the relapse cost was once diminished considerably. one other results of the BFM-83 examine was once the definition of 2 probability teams at the foundation of standardized therapy, which has bring about a risk-adapted therapy procedure within the 3rd ongoing trial, AML-BFM- 87. This development was once purely attainable due to the coop­ eration of pediatricians, physicians, radiotherapists, statisti­ cians, and particularly the workers on the hospitals and reference laboratories. hence, we wish to thank every person who has been excited by those stories and desire that they're going to be additional inspired to enhance therapy thoughts for AML in teenagers.

FAR M6 (acute erythroblastic leukemia). This morphological type, seen in only 10 out of 333 patients (3%), is rare. Except for two children who initially showed increased WBe (32000/mm 3 and 40000/mm 3 ), initial pancytopenia was observed. FAR M7 (acute megakaryoblastic leukemia). Morphologic findings of undifferentiated, nongranular blasts with cytoplasmic blebs strongly supported the diagnosis of this subtype in three patients of study AMLBFM-83.

The distribution of subtypes among the study patients differed only in the slightly higher number of patients in AML-BFM-83 with monocytic leukemias (FAB MS) (26% vs. 21%), and the slightly lower number of patients with FAB MI/M2 (40% vs. 47%). The initial clinical and hematological data by FAB subtypes for both studies are described below and listed in Table 9. FAB Ml and M2 (acute myeloblastic leukemia without and with maturation). The initial data showed no relevant differences from those of the total group of AML patients.
