Blood Cancer Prognosis | Peter McSweeney, M.D. | Colorado Blood Cancer Institute


– Each of the blood cancers
has a different prognosis. Some of them we know that
our treatments suppress them. It may suppress them for a very long time. Others, our goal is cure the disease, because we know the treatments we give can actually permanently
eliminate the diseases. That might involve cure through conventional
chemotherapy protocols, or it may require the more intensive bone marrow transplant procedures
to get rid of the disease.
