Multicentric Registry of Patients With Acute Leukemia Infected by COVID-19


The COVID-19 epidemic (Coronavirus Disease 2019) currently raging in France is an emerging infectious disease linked to a virus of the genus coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). Epidemiologically, acute myeloblastic leukemias (AML) are the most common of acute leukemias. The incidence of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is 900 new cases in France in 2018, of which 57% in humans. The treatments administered to AML and ALL patients induce variable immunosuppression: neutropenia, neuropathy, deficits in humoral or cellular immunity or combinations of these deficits. Patients with AML or ALL therefore represent a population at high risk of developing a serious form in the event of infection with SARS-CoV-2. To date, no data is available in the literature to assess the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic in the population of patients with acute leukemia.

The main objective of the study is to determine the clinical and biological prognostic factors during SARS-CoV-2 infection in patients with acute leukemia.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Clinical prognostic factors for infection with COVID-19
    • Time Frame: Day 0
    • Factors associated with overall survival will be analyzed : center, sex, leukemia subtype, previous treatment by corticosteroids, and comorbidities (respiratory, renal, cardiac, weight, diabetes)
  • Biological prognostic factors for infection with COVID-19

    • neutrophils and lymphocytes count at the time of SARS-COV2 infection
  • Medical care of Coronavirus infection
    • Time Frame: within 12 months after diagnosis
    • Describe the management carried out concerning coronavirus infection and its impact of the treatment of acute leukemia (non-invasive ventilation, orotracheal intubation, vasopressor requiring, treatments used, cause of death
