Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), is the commonest type of leukemia in adults. AML is a perilous type of malignancy, the diagnosis for which has no longer enhanced within the final twenty years. extra importantly, it's a malignancy that's visible in older adults, consequently the variety of situations is probably going to upward push because the inhabitants a long time.
Over the previous 15 years, genetic mechanisms underlying AML have all started to spread. extra learn during this region has helped determine key parts and features. for this reason, certain treatment of AML is receiving a lot awareness. it's the desire of researchers that as with continual myelogenous leukemia (CML), and the drug, Gleevec, a designated remedy for AML can be discovered.
"The potent therapy of acute myelogenous leukemia continues to be a superb problem. this article studies our realizing of the molecular and biologic foundation of the ailment. top investigators deal with advances in prognostication and healing innovations that experience major promise."
Steven T. Rosen, M.D.
