If someone with chronic CML leukemia advances to the "blast phase", is it possible to go into remission and return to the initial chronic phase?
I suppose it's possible if there's a push on the treatment side to kill the leukemic cells. Sometimes patients come in for a check-up and have many blasts. Then the Drs. hit them with increased medications/chemo to kill the leukemic cells and there's a reduction in them. This is a way to keep the leukemia under some semblance of control. How much reduction in blasts will vary from time to time.
