How successful is treatment these days? Is there a good recovery rate or is it always fatal?

What kind of treatments are used for chronic Leukemia..?

Hi Karen,

It is not an easy question:

- There are different types of acute and chronic leukemias, with totally different response to the available treatments and different survival rates.

- This particular forum seems to have quit discussions about leukemia treatment.  My fault: cod liver oil was too much for any wise dude... ;)

This link out of many may serve you well:

BTW, there had been reported miracles and spontaneous regressions in any sort of dreadful disease.
Unfortunately they are too rare.
Statistically, only life is ALWAYS fatal.
George, that another_someone, would have liked it.

Is there a more adult geared statistic page that you know of Iko?

I found that,that page referred more to children and teens!
