Overview of treatment

Standard treatment of AML consists of:

  • Induction therapy: Intended to remove the majority of the leukaemia cells from the blood and bone marrow
  • Consolidation therapy: Aimed at destroying any remaining leukaemia cells in the body and preventing relapse
  • Maintenance therapy: This is controversial in AML. However, if the haematologist thinks it would benefit to the patient, the maintenance treatment will be same therapy as that used during the induction.
