Expert Video - What is the outlook for patients with AML?

Dr. David Steensma explains that the outlook, or prognosis, varies widely from cure to a few months or years of life. The factors influencing the outlook include age, type of AML (AML subtype), general health and genetic changes present in the blasts. Younger patients and those with de novo AML often do better than those with treatment-related AML (tAML) or AML with myelodysplastic changes (AML-MRC).
