Leukemia – Chronic Myeloid – CML

Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) disrupts myeloid-type cells, which are involved in the production of other blood cells, and behaves quite differently than other types of blood cancer. Individuals with CML possess what is called a Philadelphia chromosome which is involved in the deregulation of blood cell production. While blood cells are typically depleted in other types of leukemia, CML results in their uncontrolled production.
