This is Dr. David

if his health is good enough, he could have an allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation bone marrow transplant.

another option is Second-line mitoxantrone, etoposide, and cytarabine

AML can be a tough cancer to fight.

is he being treated at a large NCCN university medical center where they can do bone marrow transplants?
