Q: 

acute leukemia

A: Taking Ambrotose is strictly up to your doctor. We cannot suggest meds here due to the fact that we do not know his complete medical and family history as well as the fact that we have not done a physical exam. I am sorry that we cannot help you more, but "prescribing" meds over the internet is never a good idea. I don''t believe Ambrotose would help much with a diagnosis of leukemia. One reason is because it would be hard to find clinical evidence to back up my opinion. Ambrotose is a nutritional supplement and nutritional supplements are not proven to be effective as their claims, thus do not require a Physician''s prescription. Therefore, you can give him this supplement if you desire to do so, but no promises. However, my concern is for the way...

Q: 

My sister in law has acute leukemia

A: Hi Wanda I am really sorry to hear that your sister in law has relapse. Basically all acute leukemia has possibility to be cured, unfortunately leukemia is vary for each person. Two person could have the same type of leukemia and use the same method for treatment but the results could be very different. For additional information, all type of ALL and AML M3 now have very good prognosis. Bone marrow transplant usually gives good remission even cured for patient but the risk is always exist. Sometimes the body refuses the new bone marrow and create complication. I wish your sister in law could get the proper donor and her body accepts that. I had read that some best hospitals in America...

Q: 

acute leukemia? Bone marrow transplant? please help?

A: The goal of a bone marrow transplant is to replace the patient's damaged bone marrow with healthy donor marrow so that the donor bone marrow takes over in the bones and grows in a healthy way. Unlike organ transplants, there is no actual surgery involved. First, she will be put through an intense round of chemotherapy that will kill off the vast majority of her bone marrow. After the chemotherapy and a recovery period, the donor bone marrow is introduced to the patient through an IV into the blood stream. It finds its way from the blood to the bones where it plants itself and begins to take over and grow normally. It takes a couple months of staying in the hospital in a clean and controlled environment (assuming no major setbacks or GVHD) before the patient is able to go home....
Q: 

My mother was diagnosed with adult acute lymphocytic leukemia and passed away in January 2006. Initially she had breast cancer and was in remission for one month when she started feeling sick. She went to the ER with a severe headache and was diagnosed with acute leukemia. Someone told me that 1% of women follow breast cancer with acute leukemia. Is this true? I have not been able to find anything online to verify this.

A: Patients with breast cancer who receive treatment with certain chemotherapy and radiotherapy are at slightly higher risk of developing secondary leukemias than the average population, but it is usually acute myeloid leukemia and not acute lymphocytic leukemia. Furthermore, these secondary leukemias usually develop after some time and not immediately after the treatment....
