Leukemia - Types - oncologychannel (2025 words)
In chronic leukemia, the blood-forming cells eventually mature, or differentiate, but they are not "normal." They remain in the bloodstream much longer than normal white blood cells, and they are unable to combat infection well.
Leukemia also is classified according to the type of white blood cell that is multiplying - that is, lymphocytes (immune system cells), granulocytes (bacteria-destroying cells), or monocytes (macrophage-forming cells).
Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is known as a myeloproliferative disorder - that is, it is a disease in which bone marrow cells proliferate (multiply) outside of the bone marrow tissue.
