  • In the early 1970's, a researchers found that in addition to the necessity to destroy all malignant leukemia cells, mice treated early on had a greater chance of survival. (swaebr.org)
  • As a result, much is known about the cellular origin of this leukemia and the genetic mechanisms that lead to malignant transformation. (bloodjournal.org)
  • spinal
  • CNS prophylaxis is treatment to make sure the leukemia does not spread to or stay in the fluid in and around the brain or spinal cord (called cerebrospinal fluid, or CSF). (cancer.ca)
  • This procedure is done to look for leukemia cells in the spinal fluid. (ahealthyme.com)
  • A small amount of cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) can be removed and sent for testing to look for leukemia cells or determine if there is an infection or other problems. (nyhq.org)
  • Survival Rates
  • In conclusion, the use of animals in leukemia research is continuous because even though the survival rates have increased, there is still room for improvement. (swaebr.org)
  • risks
  • The possible risks of leukemia from being exposed to lower levels of radiation, such as from medical imaging tests like x-rays or CT scans, are not well understood. (cancer.org)
