Research in leukemia
We are always learning more about cancer. Researchers and healthcare professionals use what they learn from research studies to develop better practices that will help find and treat leukemia. They are also looking for ways to improve the quality of life of people with leukemia.
The following will take you to a selection of research showing promise for leukemia.
- acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL)
- acute myelogenous leukemia (AML)
- chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)
- chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML)
