Havana.- Cuba’s therapy to treat lymphoblastic leukemia has shown satisfactory results in children.

According to statistics from the Health Ministry, over 85 percent of children undergoing this kind of therapy completes treatment and can survive up to 20 years or be cured.

These results were shown in a 29-year-long study of over 400 patients treated in hospitals in Villa Clara, the City of Havana, Pinar del Ro, Camagey and Santiago de Cuba.
