• infection
  • The etiology of leukemias cannot entirely be explained by known risk factors, including ionizing radiation, benzene exposure, and infection with human T cell leukemia virus. (ox.ac.uk)
  • precursor
  • To describe the incidence of acute neurotoxicity (NT) in children with lower risk B-precursor acute lymphoid leukemia (ALL) treated with intermediate-dose methotrexate (MTX) or divided dose oral MTX with or without intravenous (i.v.) mercaptopurine (MP) and extended intrathecal triple therapy.

  • adult
  • A diagnosis of chronic leukemia may be first suspected in an older adult who is found to have an elevated white cell count but who is otherwise in good health. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • A number of studies suggested that diet influences the risk of adult leukemias. (ox.ac.uk)
  • early
  • The conclusive diagnosis of any of the chronic leukemias requires a skilled morphologist, but early consideration of these disorders and prompt referral can result not only in more efficient patient management, but also in considerable cost savings to the laboratory and hospital. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • A form of leukemia characterized by overproduction of an early myeloid cell. (nih.gov)
  • cases
  • Among the 477,325 participants with mean follow-up of 11.34 yr (SD = 2.47), 773 leukemias (373 and 342 cases of lymphoid and myeloid leukemia, respectively) were identified. (ox.ac.uk)
  • B-PLL represents less than 1% of all leukemia cases worldwide, mainly affecting the elderly population with a mean age of presentation between 65-70 years. (wikipedia.org)
  • type
  • The precise findings will vary depending on the type of chronic leukemia and often requires special stains, cytogenetic analysis, and clinical correlation for accurate interpretation. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • Despite being an aggressive leukemia, the MLL1 rearranged sub-type had the lowest mutation rates reported for any cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • We examined the potential association between dietary factors and risk of leukemias among participants of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study. (ox.ac.uk)
  • In summary, this study did not support a possible link between selected dietary factors and risk of leukemias. (ox.ac.uk)
  • association
  • Cox proportional hazards regression was used to explore the association between dietary factors that have previously been associated with leukemia risk, including red and processed meat, poultry, offal, fish, dairy products, vegetables, fruits, and seeds/nuts, and risk of both lymphoid and myeloid leukemias.
