The goal of treatment for leukemia is remission. Most leukemia is treated with chemotherapy and/or bone marrow transplants. The type of treatment you receive is based on a number of factors, including the type of leukemia you have and whether it has metastasized (spread to other parts of your body).
As part of our comprehensive services, Norton Cancer Institute also gives patients the opportunity to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. A list of studies is available by contacting the downtown Louisville Norton Cancer Institute Resource Center at (502) 629-5500.
