Younger adults with ALL may be eligible for selected clinical trials for childhood ALL.(Refer to the Adolescents and Young Adults With ALL section in the PDQ summary on Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Treatment for more information.) Entry into a clinical trial is highly desirable to assure adequate patient treatment and maximal information retrieval from the treatment of this highly responsive, but usually fatal, disease.
Results from the most recent and rigorous systematic review suggested that music interventions may have moderate to strong treatment effects on anxiety, depression, fatigue, pain, and quality of life in people with cancer.ALL (also called acute lymphocytic leukemia) is an aggressive type of leukemia characterized by the presence of too many lymphoblasts or lymphocytes in the bone marrow and peripheral blood.It can spread to the lymph nodes, spleen, liver, central nervous system (CNS), and other organs. Signs and symptoms of ALL may include the following: ALL occurs in both children and adults. (Refer to the PDQ summary on Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Treatment for more information about ALL in children.) ALL presumably arises from malignant transformation of B- or T-cell progenitor cells. It is more commonly seen in children, but can occur at any age.In addition, for B-cell disease, the malignant cells should be analyzed using RT-PCR and FISH for evidence of the fusion gene.This last point is of utmost importance, as timely diagnosis of Ph1 ALL will significantly change the therapeutic approach.
Music interventions lead to small improvements in physiological responses such as heart rate, blood pressure and respiratory rate.
