Transcript of " Leukaemia Cancer Treatment in India - MedWorld India Affiliated Best Cancer Hospitals in India"

  1. 1. Leukaemia Cancer Treatment in India - MedWorld India Affiliated Best Cancer Hospitals in India Leukemia(Blood Cancer ) is a cancer of the bone marrow and blood and is the most common type of childhood cancer. The bone marrow is the soft, spongy center of the bones and produces the three types of blood cells: white blood cells that fight infection, red blood cells that carry oxygen and platelets that help with blood clotting and bleeding . Leukemia(Blood Cancer ) begin in the bone marrow from where blood is produced. An uncontrolled growth of an abnormal type of blood cell interrupts the development process of a normal blood cell. The cancerous cells or abnormal blood cells prevent the blood from performing functions such as preventing serious bleeding or fighting off with infections. Types of Blood Cancer  Myeloma : Plasma cells are targeted by this type of blood cancer. Infection and disease fighting antibodies in the body are produced by plasma cells that are basically white blood cells.  Leukemia : This type of blood cancer is due to rapid production of abnormal white blood cells. Leukemia can be found in bone marrow and in blood. These abnormal cells are no more able to fight off infection and also impair the bone marrow’s ability to produce platelets and red blood cells.  Lymphoma : Lymphatic system that produces immune cells and also removes excess fluids from the body gets affected by lymphoma blood cancer. Lymphocytes are considered as a type of white blood cell that helps in fighting off infection Bone marrow Bone marrow is a spongy material that is found inside the bones, and it produces all of the blood cells. It also produces vital cells called stem cells that can create other specialised cells that carry out essential functions. These specialised cells are of three types:
  2. 2. * Red blood cells which carry oxygen around the body * White blood cells which help fight infection * Platelets which help stop bleeding Acute leukaemia prevents the affected bone marrow from producing stem cells that mature into adult blood cells. Instead it releases numerous immature blood cells called blast cells. The immature white blood cells begin to rapidly disrupt the normal balance of cells in the blood, limiting the presence of red blood cells or platelet cells in the body. This can lead to tiredness and other symptoms of anaemia, and also increase risk of excessive bleeding. The patient also becomes more vulnerable to infection as the white blood cells are not properly formed and thus ineffective in fighting bacteria and viruses. Types of acute leukaemia There are two main types of white blood cells classified according to the type of white blood cells that are affected by cancer: * Lymphocytes which are mostly used to fight viral infections * Myeloid cells which fight bacterial infections defend the body against parasites and prevent the spread of tissue damage The two main types of acute leukaemia are: * Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, which is cancer of the lymphocytes * Acute myeloid leukaemia, which is cancer of the myeloid cells Acute myeloid leukaemia It is more common in older people, especially when over 50 years of age, and more common in males than females, though it is not clear why. The causes of acute leukaemia are uncertain, but known risk factors include: * Exposure to high levels of radiation * Exposure to benzene, a chemical that is used in manufacturing and is also found in cigarettes The lack of healthy blood cells in the blood supply causes most of the symptoms of acute leukaemia, which usually begin slowly before rapidly escalating in severity as the number of blast cells in the blood increases. Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia ALL is the most common type of cancer found in children, though it is uncommon on an overall basis. Approximately one in every 2,000 children
  3. 3. will develop ALL. The majority of cases develop in the age group of two to five year olds, and 85 per cent develop in children below the age of 15. Treatment Treatment for AML involves two stages: * Induction: The aim of the initial stage of treatment is to kill the leukaemia cells in the bone marrow, restore the blood to proper working order and resolve any symptoms that may be present. * Consolidation: This stage aims to kill any remaining leukaemia cells that may be present in the central nervous system. Treatment for ALL involves three stages: * Induction * Consolidation * Maintenance, which involves taking regular doses of chemotherapy tablets to prevent the leukaemia returning. This seems to be the most effective stage. Other treatments The other treatments that are used in some circumstances are: * Radiotherapy * Stem cell transplant * Targeted therapies Medworld India offers comprehensive care for patients with Blood Cancer, including advanced diagnosis, best treatment options .
