Abstract [en]

This study explored the feasibility and toxicity of individualized toxicity-titrated 6-mercaptopurine (6MP) dose increments during post-remission treatment with High-dose methotrexate (HDM) (5000 mg/m(2), x3) in 38 patients with Childhood (ALL). Patients were increased in steps of 25 mg 6MP/m(2) per day if they did not develop myelotoxicity within 2 weeks after HDM. 6MP could be increased in 31 patients (81%). Toxicity was acceptable and did not differ significantly between groups. Patients receiving 75 mg/m(2) per day had significantly shorter duration of treatment interruptions of 6MP than the remaining patients (P = 0.03). This study shows individualized toxicity-titrated 6MP dosing during consolidation is feasible without increased risk of toxicity.
