Hi,Vasuki,
Thanks for query,
Acute myeloid leucamia is a type of cancer affecting blood.
Only treatment is bone marrow transplantation.
If it gives result then there is complete cure.
No body can give guarantee but as there is no other alternative,one has to go for bone marrow transplantation.
Ok and bye.
