Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia Treatment - As with any form of leukemia, treatment options for chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) vary based on several factors, such as the phase of CML and the patient's overall health. Currently the most common chronic myelogenous leukemia treatment options include the following: tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy (blocks an enzyme that causes stem cells to develop into more white blood cells than the body needs), targeted drug therapy, chemotherapy, biological therapy (also called immunotherapy), high-dose chemotherapy with stem cell transplant, donor lymphocyte infusion (DLI) after stem cell transplant, and surgery.
