  • Plasma homocysteine was determined in 12 children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The patients were investigated prior to chemotherapy (stage I), during seven weeks of induction chemotherapy (stage II), and thereafter during intermittent high-dose methotrexate (HD-MTX) therapy (stage III). The patients were followed for a period of three to 15 months, and the study included a total of 80 HD-MTX courses. Before start of chemotherapy (stage I), the average plasma homocysteine level in the… CONTINUE READING
