Drug Therapies for Blood Cancers is a supplement to this publication which provides information about specific FDA approved drugs for blood cancers. (Revised in January 2013)


In the past decade alone, new drugs and new uses for existing drugs have greatly improved cure rates or remission rates for patients of all ages. Newer "targeted therapies" and "risk-adapted therapies" have resulted in higher overall response rates and decreased side effects.
