Genome-wide array approaches and sequencing analyses are powerful tools for identifying genetic aberrations in cancers, including leukemias and lymphomas. However, the clinical and biological significance of such aberrations and their subclonal distribution are poorly understood. Here, we present the first genome-wide array based study of pre-treatment and(More)

Though modern chemotherapy regimens cure over 80% of children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL), the outcome of relapsed disease remains suboptimal. Current curative strategies for relapsed patients are based on high dose cytotoxic therapy often followed by an allogeneic stem cell transplant. Drug-related toxicities limits the intensification of(More)
