During the three years which have elapsed between the second and third Wilsede conferences, the clinical management of acute leukemia has become almost routine. Every clinic has become the advocate of combination chemotherapy for remission induction and maintenance, early treatment of the central nervous system at least for childhood disease, and an appreciation of the need for supportive care measures and attention to metabolic abnormalities in the preparation for and sustenance of patients during chemotherapy. This has clearly led to the happy prospect of more patients receiving better care and thus a better chance for long-term survival and possible cure from this once uniformly uncured disease.
