Chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML)
Chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) is a type cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. In CML the bone marrow produces too many white cells, called granulocytes. These cells, sometimes called blasts or leukaemic blasts, gradually crowd the bone marrow, interfering with normal blood cell production.
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a cancer of the myeloid line of blood cells, characterized by the rapid growth of abnormal white blood cells that build up in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of normal blood cells.
