Acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL) prognosis
After you’ve been diagnosed with APL, you may want to know more about your prognosis − what's likely to happen in the future.
Your prognosis is individual to you and depends on things such as:
- your general fitness
- how high your white blood cell count was when you were diagnosed
- how successful your treatment is.
The outlook for people with APL is generally very good. Most people will respond well to treatment and will go into remission.
