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

Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), is the commonest kind of leukemia in adults. AML is a perilous type of malignancy, the diagnosis for which has now not superior within the final 20 years. extra importantly, it's a malignancy that's visible in older adults, accordingly the variety of situations is probably going to upward thrust because the inhabitants a while.

Over the prior 15 years, genetic mechanisms underlying AML have began to spread. extra examine during this quarter has helped determine key elements and features. accordingly, specific 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 detailed remedy for AML should be discovered.

"The powerful remedy of acute myelogenous leukemia continues to be a very good problem. this article studies our realizing of the molecular and biologic foundation of the illness. top investigators deal with advances in prognostication and healing techniques that experience major promise."
