Choice of salvage is contingent upon the previous treatment history, remission duration, ongoing comorbidities, and the relapse-specific features that may be targetable. Asparaginase could be incorporated into salvage for patients without previous exposure to it. This can be achieved through the augmented HCVAD protocol designed at MDACC, which intensifies the standard vincristine and corticosteroid backbone and adds the pegylated asparaginase (75). In an initial study, 80% of 88 evaluable patients initially received conventional HCVAD and 76% were receiving this regimen in first salvage.
Clofarabine is a new-generation purine nucleoside analog modeled after fludarabine and cladribine that is approved as a third-line therapy for pediatric ALL (76). Attempts have been made in both pediatric and adult population to build on its modest activity as a single agent by combining it with other chemotherapeutics (77-79). In a phase II multicenter study evaluating clofarabine added to cyclophosphamide and etoposide in 25 heavily relapsed refractory pediatric patients, ORR was 44% (7 patients with CR), and 10 patients eventually underwent AHSCT (77).
