    think you meant lymphocytic. sometimes called lymphoblastic. honestly not up to giving details right now as we just buried my dad from leukemia two weeks ago today. he'd been diagnosed as chronic myelogenous and acute lymphocytic by different doctors. but i will point out he lived years longer than we were told. and here are links i found helpful (which i am now deleting from my bookmarks...had forgotten to):

    http://www.leukemia-lymphoma.org/all_page?item_id=...

    http://www.marrow.org/PATIENT/Undrstnd_Disease_Tre...

    http://www.cancerindex.org/clinks2g.htm

    http://www.meb.uni-bonn.de/cancer.gov/CDR000006286...

    p.s--i hope this is for homework and not personal use. if it is for someone you know with it, there are also online groups who can let you know from personal experience what to expect and are helpful/supportive/friendly. we used them at first, before dad got too bad, even though every last one of us is either a nurse or somehow in the medical field and have had patients with leukemia...we'd have a ton of questions on tips or piddly things we'd taken for granted in patients but were now big deals to us since it was our family member. try acor:

    hi! i'm 23 and function acute lymphoblastic leukemia and that i visit inform you the way thats going, yet all of it truly concerns on how your treatments are. Given your age i imagine you've a tremendous probability of survival. (even as i changed into 19 i changed into clinically determined with ALL or perhaps as i changed into 22 i ended responding to all treatments. a million month in the past i changed into given 2 months to stay. Doing good thus far!)

    My daughter was diagnosed with AML Acute myeloid leaukeamia last Oct and given a survival rate or 60%, it was thought she ALL its survival rate was 80%. This is what the dr's told us, we are in Australia. Not really sure if its just an Australian rate or not. This website may help too.

    The survival rate in ALL differs for adults from children. I am not sure which you are looking for, but St Jude Children's Research Hospital (www.stjude.org) has 90% cure rates with ALL and they share their treatment info with others freely, so most all hospitals should be able to get survival statistics close to that. There are some additional details that can change that, such as if there are additional chromosomal abnormalities associated with this. The survival rate in adults with ALL is lower, but I am not sure of the exact percents. Best of luck!
