Expert Video - What does “hematologic recovery” mean?

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) expert Dr. Sandra Kurtin explains the term hematologic recovery. This means levels of specific types of blood cells have returned to normal, whether they were too low or too high. For example, your level of white cells, red cells, or platelets may return to normal or near normal after treatment, even if AML is still present. Some people make a hematologic recovery and others do not.
