Treatment options for adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, stem cell transplant, and other medications.
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) starts in the bone marrow (the soft inner part of certain bones, where new blood cells are made), but most often it quickly moves into the blood, as well. The different types of AML are discussed in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Subtypes and Prognostic.
For people with relapsed AML, the only proven potentially curative therapy is a hematopoietic stem cell transplant, if one has not.
