Answer

However, a randomized study from France questioned this approach. [91] Newly diagnosed APL patients younger than 60 years with a WBC count of less than 10,000/µL were randomly assigned to receive either ATRA combined with and followed by three courses of daunorubicin plus cytarabine  and a 2-year maintenance regimen (cytarabine group) or the same treatment but without cytarabine (no-cytarabine group).
