    Leukemia Treatment and Therapy

      Leukemia Definition

      Leukemia is a cancer that occurs when blood cells produced in the bone marrow undergo an abnormal and uncontrolled increase in their number.

      Background Information

      Very good account from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; addresses the following issues regarding the main types of leukemia:

      Causes and Risk Factors; Subtypes of Acute Myelogenous Leukemia; Symptoms and Signs; Approach to Diagnosis; Immunophenotyping; Cytogenetic Examination; Helpful Links.
