Although the treatment of patients with Philadelphia-positive (Ph+) acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has evolved with the introduction of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI), there is still a high incidence of relapse. We sought to determine the prognostic impact of the expression of two markers that have been associated with adverse outcomes (CD20 and CD25) in patients.
Our retrospective data review revealed that in patients with Ph+-ALL treated with regimens combining conventional chemotherapy and TKI, expression of CD20 may be associated with better survival outcomes, but CD25 did not influence survival.
