Need more info: Prognosis in all is still very good in young adults when treated with aggressive chemotherapy (and possibly radiation). One of the most powerful prognostic features is cytogenetics (e.g. Philadelphia chromosome, mll, and tel/aml1). T versus b cell, CNS involvement, response to initial chemo, all give additional information.
