Oncologist 's  Response
Hi Suraj, in case Of AML , if cytogenetics show poor risk pattern and first chemo doesn't show response, the chances of curing the disease reduces. If his general condition is good, we can try for few aggressive treatment options and might cure him. Though treatment at this age is difficult but surely not impossible. Take care.
