Hi, guys. My brother has been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. He is recommended to try cytarabin. I would like to know about the effectiveness of this cytotoxic drug in the treatment of this type of leukemia. Can anyone tell me something more? I will appreciate it. Thanks to all who reply to my post.

Hi to you too. Cytarabin is cytotoxic drug that is recommended for AML. As far as I know it is effective in this leukemia. I think that it is not so effective in other types of cancers. However, he has side effects. You should be aware of its ability to suppress bone marrow. It can lead to anemia. It also decreases the number of white blood cells and blood platelets. Discuss this with your healthcare provider. Bye!
