Treatment and Targeted Therapies for AML
Newer drugs and drug combinations, progress in stem cell transplantation, better supportive care and studies of new drugs in clinical trials are all contributing to improved outcomes and quality of life for people diagnosed with AML.
Personalized Molecular Medicine is playing a large part in AML prognosis and treatment. For example, the FLT3 mutation is the single most important prognostic factor in AML. Approximately 25-35% of AML patients have a FLT3 mutation. Patients with FLT3 mutations have a worse outcome and response to standard chemotherapy. For this reason alternative treatments should play a larger role. Risk factors such as a patient's age and subtype of AML also play a large role in treatment options and prognosis. It is important to research the options available to you and discuss these options with your doctor.
