Leukemia is cancer that affects blood cells. There are several types and subtypes of leukemia, and each of them strikes different types of blood cells. The chance of recovering from this cancer
- called your prognosis - depends greatly on the specific type of leukemia.
Adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patients are in a unique position
- not children anymore but, in many cases, also not fully grown. Oncologists initially believed it was best to treat patients in this age group as adults. Then research indicated that these patients often had better outcomes when treated at pediatric hospitals.
Blood Cancer Discovery, a journal set for release in 2020, will provide a critical outlet for high-impact basic, translational, and clinical research on all disease subtypes of leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and associated diseases.
