What research is ongoing in patients with ‘incurable’ acute myeloid leukemia?

Gail Roboz

September 30, 2020

During Blood Cancer Awareness Month, Know AML spoke to Gail Roboz, a world-leading doctor in acute myeloid leukemia who is based at Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, US. We asked, "What research or clinical trials are ongoing in patients with currently ‘incurable’ acute myeloid leukemia?". In this video, Gail explains what is meant by 'incurable' acute myeloid leukemia, and how these patients might be ideal candidates for clinical trials if they are physically well enough.
