    Presenting
    White Blood Cell Count and Kinetics of Molecular Remission Predict
    Prognosis in Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia Treated With All Trans
    Retinoic Acid: Results of the Randomized MRC Trial.

    Blood
    93: 4131-4143, 1999.

       


    Patients
    with acute promyelocytic leukaemia with low white blood cells count
    are treated by chemotherapy with reasonably good results. Combining
    ATRA with chemotherapy until complete remission, improves the
    prognosis. This benefit is seen only in patients with low white blood cell
    count. Patients with high
    blood cell count did not benefit from ATRA.
