I was diagnosed with APL Leukemia on November 13th, 2010. I'm sure you have heard by now that according to many this is the best strain to get......if you have to get any. Treatment is usually standard chemotherapy consisting of cyterabine and idarudicine plus a pill called ATRA or vesenoid which is a high dose vitamin A. If there is anything else that you are interested in knowing please feel free to contact me.
