Answer

Because most studies have showed a benefit to consolidation therapy, regimens using a standard 4- to 5-drug induction usually include consolidation therapy with Ara-C in combination with an anthracycline or epipodophyllotoxin. Patients who receive hyper-CVAD induction receive alternating cycles of high-dose methotrexate/high-dose Ara-c and hyper-CVAD as consolidation therapy.
