Answer

The probability of remaining in continuous complete remission after 4 years in patients aged 60 years or younger was 24% in the 100-mg group, 29% in the 400-mg group, and 44% in the 3-g group. The outcome in older patients did not differ. On the basis of this study, high-dose cytarabine for four cycles is a standard option for consolidation therapy in younger patients. [50]
