About acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most commonly diagnosed childhood cancer [1]. ALL predominantly affects children and adolescents, who account for over 60% of the more than 5,000 new cases diagnosed in the U.S. each year [2]. ALL treatment is complex, involving a number of stages and many drugs, and includes asparaginase as an essential component of current protocols. Pediatric treatment is often highly successful, with remission rates of over 95% and 75 - 85% of treated children surviving for at least five years without recurrence of leukemia [1].

About ERWINASE

ERWINASE is an asparaginase enzyme that depletes the level of the amino acid asparagine in the bloodstream. Asparagine is essential for cell growth, and its removal from the blood inhibits the growth of cells associated with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Asparaginase products are derived from bacteria, and up to 60% of patients develop antibodies to those produced by Escherichia coli [3]. ERWINASE, which is produced by Erwinia chrysanthemi, is immunologically distinct from these therapies and is suitable for patients with hypersensitivity to E. coli-derived treatments*. The BLA submission for ERWINASE includes data from a recent study in children with hypersensitivity to pegylated E. coli asparaginase, which will be presented at the American Society of Hematology in December 2010.
