Copy number aberrations (CNAs) represent cooperating events in B-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (B-ALL); however, their clinical relevance across different age cohorts is unclear. We analysed the recurrent CNAs in 157 age-stratified B-ALL negative cases for recurrent rearrangements (B-NEG ALL), and their association with patients' clinico-biological features. We found that: (i) CDKN2A/RB1-deleted and EBF1-deleted adults had a shorter disease-free survival than those with wild-type, (ii) among the unfavourable markers, CDKN2A/RB1 deletions and K/NRAS mutations retained their impact in multivariate analysis, encouraging the evaluation of CDKN2A/RB1 deletions and RAS mutations in the diagnostic/prognostic workflow to refine ALL risk assessment.
