Hi Alicat,
I donīt have AML (yet) but I think treatment is very similar all over the world:
http://www.cancer.org/docroot/CRI/content/CRI_2_4_4x_Treatment_of_Acute_Myeloid_Leukemia_AML.asp

In Sweden they now try to give maintenance treatment with Vidaza in patients with advanced MDS and MDS-AML, who have obtained complete remission with intensive chemotherapy.
Kind regards
