MedlinePlus:33 Leukemia is cancer of the white blood cells. white blood cells help your body fight infection. your blood cells form in your bone marrow. in leukemia, the bone marrow produces abnormal white blood cells. these cells crowd out the healthy blood cells, making it hard for blood to do its work. there are different types of leukemia, including acute lymphocytic leukemia acute myeloid leukemia chronic lymphocytic leukemia chronic myeloid leukemia leukemia can develop quickly or slowly. chronic leukemia grows slowly. in acute leukemia, the cells are very abnormal and their number increases rapidly. adults can get either type; childen with leukemia most often have an acute type. some leukemias can often be cured. other types are hard to cure, but you can often control them. treatments may include chemotherapy, radiation and stem cell transplantation. even if symptoms disappear, you might need therapy to prevent a relapse. nih: national cancer institute

MalaCards based summary: Leukemia is related to acute myeloid leukemia and myeloid leukemia. An important gene associated with Leukemia is RUNX1 (runt-related transcription factor 1), and among its related pathways are Signaling by Robo receptor and Endometrial cancer. The drugs irinotecan and irinotecan hydrochloride and the compounds megapoietin and anagrelide have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include myeloid, t cells and b cells, and related mouse phenotypes are normal and liver/biliary system.

Disease Ontology:8 A cancer that affects the blood or bone marrow characterized by an abnormal proliferation of blood cells.
