Acute Myeloid Leukemia Chemotherapy

What is Acute Myeloid Leukemia?

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a malignant disease of the bone marrow [1] in which hematopoietic precursors are arrested at an early stage of development. Most of these conditions are usually distinguished from other blood disorders by the presence of at least a 20% increase in the expected average amount of blasts in the bone marrow.

It is a type of blood cancer that usually affects the precursor cells of white blood cells (WBC). Other names for AML include; acute myelocytic leukemia, acute myelogenous leukemia, acute granulocytic leukemia, and acute non-lymphocytic leukemia.

This infection may spread quickly if you don’t get treated on time. To avoid the spread of the disease, seek medical attention immediately.
