Leukemia can take one of several forms, including acute lymphoblastic leukemia, acute myeloid leukemia, chronic lymphocytic leukemia and chronic myeloid leukemia, among others. Because of leukemia’s various types, an individualized course of treatment that is developed around the patient’s specific diagnosis is key to achieving a positive outcome and enhanced quality of life. Moffitt provides just that, with a team of experts from multiple specialties who collaborate to develop tailored treatment plans. In one location, patients in our leukemia program benefit from the expertise of:
- Medical oncologists

Each patient’s ideal course of leukemia treatment will vary, but many plans include a combination of chemotherapy, targeted radiation therapy, monoclonal antibody therapy, immunotherapy or bone marrow transplantation through Moffitt’s Blood and Marrow Transplant and Cellular Immunotherapy Program.
