Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

There are many types of blood cancers and each of them have a different treatment protocol depending on the staging and type of cells. Chemotherapy is used in the treatment of most blood cancers. Some of them might show partial response to one type of drugs and this requires combination therapy with cycles of multiple combinations.

It is unfortunate to know that your friend has been diagnosed with advanced stage blood cancer. I hope he is getting treated in a cancer research institute where new medicine might be available on trial basis to know if a particular disease in late stage might be controlled by giving new medicine. Please have a discussion with a hematoncologist in a cancer research institute for such treatment options. Please do not worry.
