- Exclusion criteria1. Age ≥ 19 years at diagnosis;
2. Age < 366 days at diagnosis (infant ALL);
3. Patients with secondary ALL;
4. Patients with mature B-ALL (immunophenotypical or documented presence of karyotype t(8;14), t(2;8), t(8;22) and breakpoint as in B-ALL);

- InterventionsStratification into risk groups, based upon riskfactors:
Standard risk (SR) group:
1. MRD-negativity at TP1 (day 33) and at TP2 (day 79 before start of Protocol M) AND;
2. No CNS involvement or testis involvement at diagnosis AND;
3. No prednisone poor response at day 8 AND;
4. Absence of any HR criterion.
Medium risk (MR) group:
1. Inconclusive/missing MRD results or MRD-positivity at TP1 (day 33) and/or at TP2 (day 79 before the start of protocol M), but MRD level at day 79 < 10–3 AND;
2. Absence of any HR criterion.
High Risk (HR) group:
1. MRD level > 10-3 or unknown at TP1 and MRD level of ≥ 10–3 at TP2, OR;
2. Presence of the t(4;11)(q11;q23) translocation or the corresponding fusion gene MLL/AF4, OR;
3. No complete remission at day 33;
4. Note: children with Down syndrome that fulfill the HR criteria are assigned to the MR group.

1. Does a continuous schedule of Asparaginase lead to less allergic reaction/inactivation of Asparaginase than the standard non continuous schedule of Asparaginase?
Patients are randomized to receive noncontinuous PEGasparaginase in IA (induction) and intensification of the Medium Risk group (standard arm A) or to receive continuous PEGasparaginase in IA, IB, M and intensification, (continuous arm B) with the same cumulative number of doses of PEGasparaginase.
2. Does prophylactic administration of intravenous immunoglobulins reduce the number of infections during the intensive treatment phases?
Patients are randomized in the induction and MR treatment group to receive or not receive prophylactic immunoglobulins
- Primary outcome1. Survival;
2. The number of allergic reactions/silent inactivation of asparaginase;
3. The number of infectious episodes for which patients are admitted to the hospital and receive therapeutic antibiotics or antifungals;
4. The number of patients with allergic reaction or silent inactivation to PEGasparaginase and who are therefore switched to Erwinase.
- Secondary outcome1. EFS, CIR, death in induction, death in remission and toxicity;
2. Toxicity, EFS and survival;
3. The average cumulative dose of PEGasparaginase administered to patients in the MR arm A compared to the historical control of the ALL-10 MR study.
- TimepointsDuring interim analyses and also at the end of this protocol, expected in 2018.

- Brief summaryTreatment study protocol of the Dutch Childhood Oncology Group for children and adolescents (1-19 year) with newly diagnosed acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Since 1999, infants with ALL diagnosed <1 year of age are treated on specific protocols of the Interfant collaborative group. Patients with the Philadelphia chromosome positive ALL chromosomes are treated on specific protocols of the EsPhALL group since 2004. All other ALL patients were treated according to the ALL-10 protocol that started in 2004. This treatment protocol included 3 different stratification arms (standard risk, medium risk and high risk) which are very different in their intensity. The factors used for risk group stratification in the ALL-10 protocol were the presence of t[4;11], a poor response to initial therapy, as measured in the peripheral blood by response to prednisone and one intrathecal dose of methotrexate (MTX) after one week of therapy (so-called prednisone response), induction failure after 33 days of combination chemotherapy and the minimal residual disease measured by PCR at day 33 and day 79. The ALL-10 protocol was the first DCOG protocol where therapy stratification was done by analysis of MRD. MRD was used for this purpose because an earlier study showed that MRD had a very strong prognostic value: patients with very low levels of MRD (standard risk group) had an excellent outcome, patients with high levels of MRD (high risk group) a poor outcome and patients with intermediate levels (medium risk group) had an intermediate outcome.

The ALL-10 protocol is - based upon its very good outome - used as basis for the ALL-11 protocol.
- Main changes (audit trail)28-jul-2014: "ALL-11 add on study: ‘Towards evidence-based use of ciprofloxacin prophylaxis and glucocorticoids for children with cancer’
This add on study focusses on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the glucocorticoids prednisone and dexamethasone and the antibiotic ciprofloxacin in the treatment of pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Blood serum levels of these drugs will be collected throughout therapy. Population pharmacokinetics of these data will be determined with NONMEM (NON-linear Mixed Effects Modelling). The correlation between mean residual disease (MRD) and pharmacokinetic parameters will be evaluated to study the glucocorticoid pharmacodynamics and the 24 hour area under the curve (AUC24) divided by the mean inhibitory concentrations (MIC) for ciprofloxacin. The objective of this study is to develop individualized dosing. By determining the pharmacokinetic parameters and the clinically significant covariables affecting the pk (e.g. age, co-medication, organ function, etc), the administered dose can be adjusted accordingly in order to keep the drug levels within the therapeutic window. Thus limiting side effects and maintain effective levels for each individual patient." - AB
