  • 2. Statistics of Acute Myeloid Leukemia
  • Executive Summary Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) makes up approximately 1% of cancers. It is the second most common type of leukaemia diagnosed in adults and children, but most cases occur in adults. It makes up 31% of all adult leukaemia cases, and the average age of diagnosis is 68 years, but i...

  • 5. Causes and Risk Factors of Acute Myeloid Leukemia
  • CAUSES:- Acute myeloid leukemia(AML) develops when the genetic material or DNA of a bone marrow cell changes (mutates). The DNA of a cell carries the instructions that tell it what to do. Normally, the cell's DNA directs it to grow at a specific rate and die at a specific time. The mutations in ...
