Consolidation Therapy

Consolidation therapy may be given following induction chemotherapy to help eliminate any AML cells that may not have been killed by induction chemotherapy. Patients who achieve a complete remission with induction chemotherapy, meaning AML cells are not detected by laboratory testing, may move on to receive consolidation therapy. Consolidation therapy may help reduce the likelihood of AML returning.1
