Induction Therapy

The first phase of AML treatment is known as the remission induction phase. Its aim is to destroy AML cells and restore normal blood cell production. Remission is achieved when there is no visible evidence of AML cells in the blood or bone marrow, and normal numbers of healthy blood cells are present. Depending on the type of AML you have, you may receive combination chemotherapy, high- or low-dose chemotherapy.

You are likely to spend most of your time receiving induction therapy in hospital because of the need for antibiotics and frequent transfusions. Treatment usually takes around 4 to 6 weeks. Some patients will need more than one course of induction therapy to achieve remission.
