Treatment of leukemia in Germany

Leukemia is a group of malignant blood diseases, in which the process of hematopoiesis is disturbed and immature forms of leukocytes start chaotic growth, filling the bone marrow, vessels and carrying blood flow through various organs and tissues; affecting blood-forming organs as well as lymph nodes.

Currently, most of the leukemia incidents are completely amenable to treatment, especially the condition is diagnosed at an early stage.

The prognosis in patients with acute lymphocytic leukemia is very much optimistic with a potency for a complete remission.

In case of relapse, in most cases it is highly possible to reach the second complete remission. Patients after the second recovery are candidates for bone marrow transplantation.
