is AML more fatal than APL? (acute promyelocytic leukemia)
Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) is actually a subtype of acute myelogenous leukemia. So you can think of APL as a kind of AML. (In other words, all APLs are AMLs, but not all AMLs are APLs.)
APL is considered the most curable form of AML. It appears the cure rate is around 60 to 75%.
