Hello,
I was diagnosed with APL September 17,2001 at the age of 26. I am interested in hearing from anyone else with this subtype of leukemia to compare treatments, prognosis etc. Take care, Lisa.

    Lisa,
    I was diagnosed with APL in Dec. 1997. I have been in remission for almost 4 1/2 years. I would be interested to hear if you had exactly the same treatment. I was almost 49 when I went into hospital. Please e-mail me if you like & we can compare. You can e-mail me at my web page. Thanks.

    newly in remission
    Dx 7/4/10 and had 4 rounds (induction, 2x middle and consolidation)
    Atra since last only every 3 mos now instead of daily. Doc said last one of those this July? That would be 1 yr since dx?
