You can also do different types of therapy or bone marrow transplantation. Induction, consolidation, and maintenance are three phases of ALL. The treatment usually take around 2 years, but it also depends on how intense your ALL is. When treatment is successfully finished, you will go into remission. If after ten year in remission without your ALL coming back, then you are considered cured.
Is there a way to get rid of ALL?
As of 2016, there are about 95,764 cases of ALL in the U.S. There are about 351,000 cases of ALL in the world as of 2008. There is a way to be cured from ALL. ALL is believed cured or controlled after 10 years in remission without a sight of it coming back. I had this disease when I was 5 years old and now I am 20, so I was cured 5 years ago.
Doctors are still working to find a better cure for ALL by asking patients and their relatives if they will allow the doctors to test a new type cure with drugs and other ingredients. If it is successful, then they have discovered another way to control ALL and if the experiment is unsuccessful, then this will be a learning experience for the doctor to never do that again. The test/experiment is called a clinical trial.
Based on cancerresearchuk.org, there isn’t an exact reason that ALL happens or that you get ALL, but there are risks that can cause the happening of this disease and symptoms to tell if you might have this disease. Some of these risks can then cause your bone marrow to make immature blood cells instead of mature ones. This disease was discovered even before 1827 around 1811 but was described in details in 1845 by Rudolf Virchow. Someone had this disease way back then and no one knew what it was. There was no cure or name for the disease at that time. Radiation therapy was the first mention of a treatment in 1915 and is still being used today. This is a pretty hard disease to cure, needing tons of specialists working together. If things go to plan, the people helping to cure ALL will have more knowledge about it and the patient will be happy to live.
