Abstract

For the purpose of evaluating the efficiency of an unspecific immunostimulation in acute leukemias the results of treatment obtained from 2 groups of patients (a total of 55 children) were compiled. In the first group an unspecific immunostimulation with vaccination (BCG, diphtheria tetanus pertussis, measles) could be observed after the induction of remission during a cytostatic maintenance therapy. In the second group a polychemical therapy and the CNS irradiation was applied according to the treatment scheme developed by the working team of Donald Pinkel. The group of patients treated with unspecific immunostimulation involved a high percentage of surviving children. In total there was no essential difference between the treatment results of both schemes of therapy during the observation period. The treatment of hyperleukocytic forms of leukemias causes particular difficulties.
