Brief Summary:

The research is devoted to studying the features of the metabolic syndrome in cancer survivors in childhood is supposed to answer the following questions:

  • How can metabolic syndrome be diagnosed in the Russian population of survivors of acute lymphoblastic leukemia and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas?
  • What are the features of the clinical symptoms of metabolic syndrome in this category of patients?
  • Which genetic mutations are found in cancer survivors of patients with metabolic syndrome; Which of these mutations can be considered as protective or vice versa predisposing to the development of metabolic syndromes? Is the metabolic syndrome associated with an increased frequency of toxic complications of therapy during the intensive stages?

Study Population

Participants for this study will be patients of "Russkoe Pole" cohort, the study designed to evaluate health among children and adolescents survivors of childhood leukemia and lymphoma as they age. Participants in RPC undergo risk-based medical screening according to the Standards of Medical Insurance for rehabilitation of Cancer treated patients.

To be eligible for RPC, cancer survivors must has been treated at Russian children oncology clinics by MB-ALL/ BFM-NHL and be 17 years of age or younger, and at least 6 months from the completion of the therapy. All the patients will has exhaustively full epicrisis of medical history with cumulative doses of medications. coz RPC is a retrospective cohort study with ongoing recruitment (additional survivors become eligible over time).


Inclusion Criteria:

  • Cancer survivors:
  • Treatment with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy for a primary ALL/NHL diagnosed prior to age 17 years.
  • ≤ 15 years of age at the time of enrollment.
  • No cytostatic drugs uptake during the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of diabetes mellitus types 1 or 2 types before antitumor therapy
  • Active oncological disease
  • History of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant
  • The renouncement of participation from the patient or legally authorized representative
