  2. 2. Leukemia Treatment In India – Affordable Cost And World Class In India<br />Leukemia Treatment In India<br /> <br />WHAT IS LEUKEMIA?<br /> <br /> The term leukemia actually describes a group of cancers involving an excess of white blood cells. In leukemia normal control mechanism starts to produce large number of abnormal white blood cells disrupting production of normal blood cells and affecting vital functions that these blood cells carry out......<br /> <br /> Acute Leukemia<br /> <br /> Acute Lymphoblastic (lymphoid) Leukemia (ALL) accounts for more than 80% of cases of and one of the few forms of cancer that is more common in children than adults.<br />Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) accounts adults for most of the remaining cases.....<br /> <br /> <br />
  3. 3. Chronic Leukemia<br /> <br />Chronic leukemia which progress slowly are very rare in childhood<br />Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) accounts for less than 3% of childhood leukemia<br />Chronic Lymphoblastic Leukemia is unheard of in children .....<br /> <br /> <br />Causes of Leukemia?<br /> <br />Leukemia is more common in men than women. The main causes are : -<br /> <br /> * Radiation exposure : -<br /> Exposure to very high levels of radiation increases acute leukemia risk.<br /> <br /> <br />* Exposure to benzene : - <br /> Exposure to the chemical benzene at work over a long period of time increases your risk of developing acute leukemia......<br /> <br /> <br />
  4. 4. Diagnosis of Leukemia<br /> <br /> Any diagnosis relies on a good medical history (the story of how the illness developed), a physical examination and special tests guided by the history and examination. Blood tests are important in the diagnosis of leukemia. A sample of blood is examined under a microscope to see what the cells look like and to determine the number of mature cells and blasts.......<br /> <br /> <br />Bone Marrow test for Leukemia<br /> <br /> To check further for leukemia cells or to tell the type of Leukemia, a heamatologist, oncologist, or pathologist performs a bone marrow biopsy. The doctor withdraws the sample by inserting a needle into a large bone (usually the hip) and removing a small amount of liquid bone marrow. This procedure is called bone marrow aspiration. A bone marrow biopsy is performed with a larger needle, and a small piece of bone and bone marrow is removed. This is usually done under local anesthesia or with sedation. ......<br /> <br />
  5. 5.  <br />Symptoms of Leukemia<br /> <br /> When leukemia develops, the leukemia cells take over the bone marrow and prevent the normal formation of the different blood cells.<br /> <br />They affect the normal three cell lines and their functions : -<br /> <br /> * Leukemia cells are abnormal cells that cannot do what normal blood cells do. They cannot help the body fight infections. For this reason, people with leukemia often get infections and have fevers.<br /> * They crowd out the normal blood-forming cells. As a result there are not enough red blood cells to carry oxygen, so patients become tired and pale (called anemia), and there are not enough platelets to stop bleeding and bruising.....<br /> <br /> <br />
  6. 6. Treatment of Leukemia in India<br /> <br /> Treatment for leukemia is complex. It varies with the type of leukemia, and it is not the same for all patients. The treatment depends not only on the type of leukemia, but also on certain features of the leukemia cells, the extent of the disease, and whether the leukemia has been treated before. It also depends on the patient&apos;s age, symptoms and general health.<br /> <br /> Bone marrow transplantation in India is a way of allowing doctors to use very large doses of chemotherapy and radiotherapy to kill the cancerous cells. It is currently preferred in some centres to use peripheral blood stem cells from the donor. A second option is the Graft-versus-Leukemia effect, where the cells from the new marrow recognise the leukemia cells as cancerous and kill them. .....<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
  7. 7. Radiotherapy (also called radiation therapy) uses high :- <br />energy rays like X-rays to stop cancer cells from growing and multiplying. This may be directed to a specific part of the body like the spleen, or to the whole body, usually as preparation for a bone marrow transplant.Read More……<br /> <br /> Biological therapy (also called immunotherapy) involves treatment with substances that affect the immune system&apos;s ability to destroy cancer cells. The two available types of biological therapy are Interferon, which stimulates the immune system to kill cancer cells, and monoclonal antibodies, which stick to cancer cells to draw the immune system&apos;s attention to them. These are usually used in the chronic rather than the acute leukemia’s.Read More……<br /> <br /> <br />
