There are different types of leukemia, lymphoid vs myeloid, acute vs chronic. Some leukemia can be treated for chemotherapy only, some leukemia will need to be treated by stem cell transplant. The outcome of stem cell transplant is different depending on what type of leukemia a patient has. However, stem cell transplant has an established record to cure leukemia.
