  • leukemic
  • Children with AML who have a white blood cell count (WBC) greater than 100,000 per cubic milliliter, secondary AML, and leukemic cells with a monosomy 7 karyotype have low remission induction rates, whereas children with leukemia cell chromosomal abnormalities t(8;21) and inv 16 have a high likelihood of achieving remission. (meds.com)
  • Other chemotherapy agents, specifically epipodophyllotoxins and anthracyclines, have also been associated with treatment-related leukemias, which are often associated with specific chromosomal abnormalities in the leukemic cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Leukemic transformation can occur in any of these two cells, but transformation of myeloid dendritic cell is less common and it leads to a form of leukemia known as acute myeloid dendritic cell leukemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Leukemia is a type of cancer that affects the body's white blood cells (WBCs). (kidshealth.org)
  • These leukemia cells are abnormal and cannot mature into normal white blood cells. (kidshealth.org)
  • These lumps of leukemia cells (called chloromas) can develop anywhere in the body. (kidshealth.org)
  • 1 As the leukemia spreads, infection, anemia or easy bleeding may occur due to a diminished number of healthy blood cells. (novartis.com)
  • These samples are sent to a lab, and they are looked at under a microscope for leukemia cells. (cancer.org)
  • They can help find liver or kidney problems caused by the spread of leukemia cells or by the side effects of certain chemotherapy drugs. (cancer.org)
  • This is a super-sensitive test that can be used to look for the BCR-ABL oncogene in leukemia cells. (cancer.org)
  • This type of leukemia affects 20% of kids with this cancer of the blood cells. (rchsd.org)
  • By analyzing the properties of the cancer cells, doctors can determine the type of leukemia a child has. (rchsd.org)
  • acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) A fast-growing cancer that causes too many immature white blood cells called lymphoblasts to be made. (nccn.org)
  • advanced phase A rating of chronic myelogenous leukemia, when the number of immature blood cells (blast cells) is high and it is causing symptoms. (nccn.org)
  • chronic phase The first phase of chronic myelogenous leukemia, when the number of white blood cells is higher than normal but may not cause symptoms. (nccn.org)
  • Healthy myeloid cells produce red blood cells, platelets and white blood cells (apart from lymphocytes). (wikipedia.org)
  • symptoms
  • Occasionally, a person may show no symptoms, and the leukemia may be discovered incidentally during a routine blood test. (wikipedia.org)
  • normally
  • But in leukemia, WBCs turn cancerous and multiply when they shouldn't, resulting in too many abnormal WBCs, which then interfere with the body's ability to function normally. (rchsd.org)
  • include
  • Strategies against this subtype of acute myelogenous leukemia include the refolding of the C-terminal domain using pharmalogical chaperones and the displacement of the protein from nucleolus to nucleoplasm, which has been linked to apoptotic mechanisms. (wikipedia.org)
