In brief: Several

There are multiple protocols for a child with all.
They frequently change as well, because we are learning more and more about how to take care of these children all the time. The best source of information for the current protocols is your oncologist. When i was a child, all was a death sentence. Now, because of all that's been learned, it's not any longer. Good luck to you.

In brief: Chemo for 2-3 yrs

The specific therapy for all is dependent on risk factors and response to therapy.
In general, it involves intravenous, intrathecal, and oral medications given in phases over 2 -3 years. The childrens oncology group web site is a good source for further information.

In brief: COG

Children with all should be treated at a center with an experienced pediatric oncologist associated with the children's oncology group (cog).
They have standard protocols for all treatment that are safe and effective.

In brief: Ask the specialist

Instead of reading online and confusing yourself, it might be better you ask the hematologistl/oncologist face to face who can give you the best answer and answer all other questions that may arise.

In brief: See link

Being treated at an institution that is part of the children's oncology group is essential.
You can decide if the current clinical trial is right for your child, or if you would prefer a standard of care based on the last closed study. For a good overview of all (with links to more clinical trial information): http://www.Cancer.Gov/cancertopics/pdq/treatment/childall/patient/page1/allpages.
