Consolidation Therapy

After remission is achieved, consolidation therapy aims to kill any AML cells remaining in the blood or bone marrow that may be undetectable under the microscope, but have the potential to begin to grow again causing a relapse. Depending on your age and consideration of potential treatment side-effects, this may involve further chemotherapy and/or stem cell transplantation.

The type of consolidation therapy you receive will depend on how aggressive your AML is and how it has responded to induction therapy. Consolidation therapy is usually given in hospital. It takes place over a few days and is repeated every 4 to 6 weeks for approximately 2 to 6 months. Patients are often able to go home between courses.
