Why do we have so many different types of acute lymphoblastic leukemia?

Anthony Moorman

August 6, 2021

Know ALL was pleased to speak to Anthony Moorman, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. We asked, Why do we have so many different types of acute lymphoblastic leukemia?

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is a blood cancer that typically arises in the bone marrow, causing normal cells to divide uncontrollably. In this video, Moorman explains the impact of different genetic mutations on leukemic cells and how these unique combinations result in different acute lymphoblastic leukemia subtypes. He points out that clinicians choose the best treatment options for patients according to their specific type of acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
