Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) is a type of cancer that starts in blood-forming cells of the bone marrow and invades the blood. It affects mainly older adults.
Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) is a type of leukemia, which are cancers of the blood-forming cells of the bone marrow.In adults, blood cells are formed in the bone marrow, by a process that is known as haematopoiesis.In CMML, there are increased numbers of monocytes and immature blood cells in the peripheral blood and bone marrow, as well as abnormal looking cells in at least one type ...

Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, or CMML, is a cancer of the blood-forming cells that reside in the bone marrow. In CMML, the abnormalities in the blood-forming cells don’t just affect the bone marrow—they cause a person to have too many monocytes—a type of white blood cell—and this affects other parts of the body as well.
What is chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia (CMML)? CMML is a form of leukaemia that is characterised by high numbers of white blood cells, called ‘monocytes’, in the blood and bone marrow. CMML is an uncommon blood cancer with features of two other types of blood cancer. Even though it has leukaem
Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) starts in the bone marrow and then moves to the blood. It happens when monocytes in the bone marrow begin to grow out of control, filling the bone marrow and preventing other blood cells from growing.
Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) is a rare cancer of the white blood cells. It occurs when a mature type of white blood cell, monocytes, do not develop normally. These abnormal cells grow out of control and crowd out healthy blood cells.
Chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia (CMML) CMML is a type of chronic blood disorder in which there are too many monocytes in the blood. Monocytes are a type of white blood cell.
Multicolor flow cytometry (MFC) can be useful to detect atypical marker expression in chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. Many studies have shown atypical monocytic maturation as detected by MFC in ...
