Acute Myelogenous Leukemia Treatment - The treatment regimen for acute myelogenous leukemia varies, depending on factors such as age and progression of the illness. The most common treatment option for AML involves chemotherapy in a two-part treatment plan of induction therapy (to destroy as many cancer cells as possible), followed by consolidation therapy (to destroy as many of the remaining cancer cells as possible). This part may include chemotherapy with or without a stem cell transplant.
