    My friend from Denmark was diagnosed with de novo acute myeloid leukemia in August 2011. He is looking for treatment options in the US.

    My friend, Rune, is 30 years old. He has been told by his doctors in Copenhagen, where he has been treated so far, that it's "unrealistic" and "unlike" that he can be cured for his leukemia. It's now a matter of treatment that can extend his life and they can't tell him any perspective about time. He has received induction chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, the response has been short and insuffucient. We would greatly appreciate any knowledge you may have on other treatment options in the US. Thank you so much! Best regards, Lise

      MD Anderson in Houston, TX is one of the best leukemia treatment hospitals in the world for AML. My mother is being treated there and doing very well. My father is also being scheduled to go there for treatment of another form of cancer. I've been there and it's a very positive environment, with cutting-edge treatments and clinical trials. www.mdanderson.org
