Leukaemia symptoms, causes, treatments and survival rates

What is Leukaemia?

The bones of our bodies maintain body shape, exercise and engage in calcium control, and inside the bones are tissues called bone marrow, which are not as dense as bone. It serves to make blood cells such as white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Leukemia is the cancer of the white blood cells. Abnormal white blood cells multiply excessively and inhibit the production of normal white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Leukaemia patients become life-threatening by these symptoms when they are not treated.

Leukaemia symptoms
Caused by the leukemia cells, will have high fever, fatigue, bone pain, diarrhea, loss of consciousness, difficulty breathing, and bleeding

The cause of leukemia

Leukemia is caused by a mutation in the bone marrow producing white blood cells at a stage when the hematopoietic stem cells are becoming mature which is the stem cells of the white blood cells. These cells are called leukemia blasts and are composed of groups of cells that show the immature or which cells couldn’t differentiation at the stage of the mutation. These group of cells have a rapid rate of growth, but the rate of cell death decreases, leading to abnormal growth in the bone marrow of the blasts. As a result, normal bone marrow functions are interrupted and result in bone marrow failure.

Leukaemia survival rate

In fact, we analyze the data from 1,200 people who received bone marrow transplants for acute leukemia at hospitals in Korea. The survival rates were 64% who received the bone marrow transplant from their siblings and 59 percent who received from others.

There is a report which states that there are 80 to 90 percent long-term
