Over the previous 15 years, genetic mechanisms underlying AML have started to spread. extra learn during this zone has helped establish key parts and features. as a result, certain treatment of AML is receiving a lot recognition. it's the desire of researchers that as with continual myelogenous leukemia (CML), and the drug, Gleevec, a designated remedy for AML may be discovered.

"The powerful remedy of acute myelogenous leukemia continues to be an exceptional problem. this article experiences our figuring out of the molecular and biologic foundation of the illness. top investigators tackle advances in prognostication and healing techniques that experience major promise."
