A Diet and Activity Intervention to Improve Survival and Quality of Life in Obese Adolescents Receiving Therapy for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is the most common childhood cancer and relapse is the leading cause of death. Obesity during treatment is associated with relapse and greater side effects. We propose to conduct a clinical trial testing a diet and activity intervention to reduce obesity, reduce relapse, and lessen side effects.
