The article presents an assessment of the neurotoxicity of chemotherapy in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia receiving specific treatment according to the protocols used in pediatric oncological practice. An analysis of the neurological state with the determination of the chemokine profile of blood plasma was performed in 21 children aged 3 to 17 at the Regional Children’s Clinical Hospital in Yekaterinburg and the Central Research Laboratory of the Ural State Medical University in 2019. In the study group of children, neurotoxic complications were recorded in 42.9% of cases. At the same time, the appearance of neurological symptoms in most patients (77.7%) was observed during co chemotherapy at the stages of reinduction during consolidating treatment with a predominant clinical picture of chemo-induced polyneuropathy. In a comparative analysis of the indicators of the chemokine profile in groups of children, depending on the formation of neurotoxic complications during chemotherapy, we selected the chemokines CXCL10 (IP-10) and CXCL12 (SDF-1α) as possible prognostic biomarkers of damage to the nervous system.
