Acute Premyelocytic Leukemia

APL (or M3 type) accounts 10% of all acute myeloid leukemia and is the most dangerous one. Usually, APL is treated by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Unfortunately, many patients treated with these methods relapse and become drug tolerant, thus being more difficult to treat. Even worse, the most powerful therapy, myeloid transplant, cannot be widely applied due to the many restrictions of itself.

Arsenious acid injection, which we have successfully used in dealing with APL for a long time, is a Chinese medicine. Its low ratio of relapse and long remission duration makes it very welcome in most APL patients of China and has intrigued many medicine professionals of other countries.

The side effects were few and minor, according to the pilot study done at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City and published in New England Journal of Medicine.
