Intensive therapy: If fitted for intensive chemotherapy, a patient with AML is usually treated with several cycles of chemotherapy. Fever, infection, frequent blood transfusion, fatigue is very common after each cycle of chemotherapy. Reduced intensity therapy is used in elderly patients with less toxicity. However, the rate of cure is less when compared to intensive chemo.

No: It depends on patient' s condition, type of response, Cytogenetics, and if a transplant can be done in poor risk disease or not
