NEULS: Risk of Psychopathology and Neurocognitive Impairment in Leukemia Survivors

Type of Protocol/Clinical Study

Supportive Studies: Long Term Effects : Leukemia


This is a non-therapeutic study that will characterize patterns of long-term neurocognitive outcomes and brain maturation in survivors of childhood leukemia, and will utilize existing data collected during acute treatment to identify predictors of such outcomes. The goal is to identify children treated for childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) that are at the greatest risk for long-term neurocognitive problems (the ability to concentrate, remember things, process information, learn, speak, and understand), behavioral problems (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) and other problems such as depression and anxiety. The association between genetic polymorphisms and the presence of these neurocognitive and behavioral problems will also be explored.
