Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) Directory
Chronic myelogenous leukemia, or CML, is a rare cancer that is caused by the overproduction of white blood cells in large bones. The leukemia eventually invades other organs. In the first phase (chronic), the white blood cells overproduce gradually and slowly. In the second phase (acute), the leukemia aggressively takes over the body. Treatments include bone marrow transplants, interferon-alpha medications, and more.
