    Ummm....
    This is a disease that has had very high success rates and improve treatment.

    Figures 3a-c shows survival by age, gender and WHO PS. Of patients surviving the first 30 days, all but two (97%) achieved complete remission (CR). Two of the CR patients subsequently underwent autologous transplantation in first CR; both are still alive.

    Basically this Swedish study breaks down data from 1997 to 2006 and a third of the patients didn't get the treatment of ATRA (a derivative of vitamin A). The 30 days was the larger risk period of death and like I said treatment of this disease has greatly improved since 1997.
