Acute Myelogenous Leukemia: Genetics, Biology and Therapy by Zeev Estrov (auth.), Lalitha Nagarajan (eds.)

By Zeev Estrov (auth.), Lalitha Nagarajan (eds.)

Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), is the commonest kind of leukemia in adults. AML is a dangerous kind of malignancy, the diagnosis for which has now not more desirable within the final twenty years. extra importantly, it's a malignancy that's visible in older adults, hence the variety of instances is probably going to upward push because the inhabitants a while.

Over the previous 15 years, genetic mechanisms underlying AML have started to spread. extra learn during this quarter has helped establish key parts and features. hence, special treatment of AML is receiving a lot awareness. it's the wish of researchers that as with power myelogenous leukemia (CML), and the drug, Gleevec, a precise remedy for AML should be discovered.

"The powerful therapy of acute myelogenous leukemia continues to be a good problem. this article stories our realizing of the molecular and biologic foundation of the ailment. best investigators handle advances in prognostication and healing thoughts that experience major promise."
