Treatment AML

As with ALL, the primary aim in treating patients with AML is to induce remission and thereafter prevent relapse. Treatment of AML is conventionally divided into two phases: induction and consolidation. Despite several strategies to increase the intensity of therapy, the OS rate has reached a plateau at 50% to 60%, suggesting that further intensification of therapy will not improve survival rates greatly.12 The current induction therapy for AML usually consists of a combination of cytarabine and daunorubicin, with the frequent addition of a steroid and/or an antimetabolite such as 6-thioguanine. The second phase of treatment for AML is called consolidation. The purpose of this phase is to further enhance remission with more cytoreduction.
