Maintenance therapy means long-term administration of low-dose chemotherapy or other drugs. Despite extensive studies involving many types of leukemia, maintenance therapy has clinically proven efficacy for only two diseases: ALL and acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). This section focuses on maintenance therapy in Ph- ALL. The book gives an overview on the current strategies for management of adult ALL including approaches to rare entities and specific situations. It represents the result of a structured consensus process conducted by the members of the European Working Group for Adult ALL.
