It depends: It all depends upon the type of leukemia. Leukemia is not one disease and response rates vary according to the type of leukemia.

It depends: It depends heavily on type of leukemia, age of patient, response to chemotherapy and many other factors. A general statement about chances of remission can not be made before knowing all these variables.
