About acute myeloid leukemia

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a type of leukemia that starts in the bone marrow but moves quickly into the blood, sometimes spreading to other parts of the body. Unlike in normal blood cell development, in AML, the rapid build up of abnormal white blood cells in the bone marrow may interfere with the production of normal blood cells, resulting in decreased healthy white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets.
