Treatment effectiveness of leukaemia: How well treatment for leukaemia works depends on the type and stage of the disease. Acute leukaemia often goes into remission. This is when your symptoms go away and the disease is under control, but not necessarily cured. Unfortunately, for many people with acute leukaemia, remission is followed by a relapse - when the disease returns.
