In contrast to other contemporary treatment approaches to pediatric leukemia, current protocols for Acute Myeloid Leukemia in children with Down syndrome (DS AML) lack a risk-adapted stratification of treatment intensity. As a result, cycles of high-dose chemotherapy continue to be administered to all patients with DS AML. The majority of patients with DS AML have prognostically very favorable disease and do not benefit from high-intensity chemotherapy. Maximizing dose intensity has proved a successful strategy for the treatment of AML in the general pediatric population; however, intensive AML therapy protocols were optimized in the non-DS pediatric population and have shown adverse effects on this specific population of DS AML. Therefore, COG has pursued the rational development of treatment protocols specific for DS AML.
