Childhood Leukemia Early Adverse Reactions 2017 Conference

Elsinore, Denmark, June 1-3, 2017

Dear colleague,

treatment intensification has led to significant improvements in cure rates for childhood acute leukemia, but also to higher risks of acute treatment-related toxicities. We still have a limited understanding of why these toxicities emerge and the individual risk factors hereof. A large international collaboration is now ongoing to address these early adverse events, including setting strategies for prevention and treatment.

The Childhood Leukemia Early Adverse Reactions ( CLEAR) conference has gathered a panel of world experts to address acute toxicities during therapy for childhood acute leukemia.
