Remission (medicine)

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Remission is either the disappearance or lowering signs and symptoms of a disease, usually used with cancer.[1]

A remission may be considered a partial remission or a complete remission. But even with complete remission, some signs of the disease also persist.

Remission can be accompanied by asymptomatic carrier.
