About leukemia (blood cancer) treatment In India

Leukemia treatment options depends upon lot of factors like type of leukemia, age of the patient, patient physical condition and spread of cancer to other parts of the body.

Common treatments used to fight leukemia include:

  • Chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is the major form of treatment for leukemia. This drug treatment uses chemicals to kill leukemia cells.Depending on the type of leukemia you have, you may receive a single drug or a combination of drugs. These drugs may come in a pill form, or they may be injected directly into a vein.
The most commonly used chemo drugs include:
  • Vincristine or liposomal vincristine (Marqibo)
  • Daunorubicin (daunomycin) or doxorubicin (Adriamycin)
  • Cytarabine (cytosine arabinoside, ara-C)
  • L-asparaginase or PEG-L-asparaginase (pegaspargase or Oncaspar)
  • 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP)
  • Methotrexate.
  • Cyclophosphamide.
  • Prednisone.
  • Biological therapy. Biological therapy works by using treatments that help your immune system recognize and attack leukemia cells.
Biological therapy drug used for CML

Interferon alfa (Intron A, Wellferon) is the biological therapy occasionally used to treat CML. It can be given alone or in combination with the chemotherapy drug cytarabine (Cytosar, Ara-C).

This drug is usually injected into tissue just under the skin and sometimes into the muscle. It is given as long as the blood cell counts remain normal.

Interferon alfa can sometimes cause severe side effects, so it may not be offered to some people.

  • Targeted therapy. Targeted therapy uses drugs that attack specific vulnerabilities within your cancer cells.For example, the drug imatinib (Gleevec) stops the action of a protein within the leukemia cells of people with chronic myelogenous leukemia. This can help control the disease.
  • Radiation therapy. Radiation therapy uses X-rays or other high-energy beams to damage leukemia cells and stop their growth. During radiation therapy, you lie on a table while a large machine moves around you, directing the radiation to precise points on your body.You may receive radiation in one specific area of your body where there is a collection of leukemia cells, or you may receive radiation over your whole body. Radiation therapy may be used to prepare for a stem cell transplant.
  • Stem cell transplant. A stem cell transplant is a procedure to replace your diseased bone marrow with healthy bone marrow.Before a stem cell transplant, you receive high doses of chemotherapy or radiation therapy to destroy your diseased bone marrow. Then you receive an infusion of blood-forming stem cells that help to rebuild your bone marrow.You may receive stem cells from a donor, or in some cases you may be able to use your own stem cells. A stem cell transplant is very similar to a bone marrow transplant.
