Consolidation Therapy

Consolidation therapy is given after remission is achieved. Depending on your disease type, this may involve further chemotherapy, other targeted medications, and/or stem cell transplantation.

The goal of consolidation therapy is to kill any cells in the blood and bone marrow that may be inactive at the time of treatment, but have the potential to begin to grow again at a later time causing a relapse. The length and type of therapy you are given during this phase will depend on the risk of relapse, as assessed by your doctor. Generally, consolidation therapy takes place over a few months. With the exception of stem cell transplantation, most of your consolidation treatment can be given as an outpatient during the day, so that you can go home at night.
