Hi, last year i was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Chemotherapy didnt work, so the hospital had me undergo a bone marrow/stem cell transplant, which happened in august last year. However 2 months ago, i was told that i needed to have Azacitidine jabs every month for 12 months, each time for 5 days consecutively.

My questions are:

What is the purpose of me having to go through Azacitidine jabs after i have already gone through a stem cell transplant?

What happens if i don’t take the Aza jabs or what happens after i stopped them in a few months? Will i have a relapse and die?

Also, what happens if my donor cells does not wake up? Does this also mean a relapse?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Hi Rachael,

You need to ask these questions to your haematologist or oncologist, as they are beyond the scope of this QnA.

AML is complicated in general, and the answer is never straight forward.

For example, the correct treatment in your case may also depend on genetic and molecular sub-typing.

Your haematologist will have access to all the necessary information and test results (which we do not possess), in order to give you the most appropriate advice to your questions.
