Leukemia is a chronic and medical condition of the body's blood-forming tissues including the bone marrow characterized by high numbers of abnormal white blood cells.
Most cases of leukemia start on the cells in the tissues of bone marrow.
Bone marrow is a semi-solid tissue found within the spongy or cancellous portions of the bones.
In the stage system, patients with leukemia are classified into 5 different stages depending on the levels of an abnormal white blood cells. treatment of leukemia is also depended on the size of the tumor and grade of metastasis.
According to the statistic, in the US, approximately 170,000 people will be diagnosed with a form of blood cancer in 2018. In other words, every 3 minutes, a person in the US is diagnosed with blood cancer.
The 5 years of the survival rate of the patient with leukemia are totally depending on the types.
Patients diagnosed with chronic myeloid (or myelogenous) leukemia (CML), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), acute myeloid (or myelogenous) leukemia (AML) and acute lymphocytic (or lymphoblastic) leukemia (ALL) have the 5 years survival rate of 68%, 86%, 274.% and 715 respectively.
However, in children diagnosed with acute lymphocytic (or lymphoblastic) leukemia (ALL), the 5 years survival rate is significantly higher. Children and adolescents between 5 - 15 years of age, and younger than 5 years of age have a rate of 91.8% and 94%, respectively.
Researchers do not know the exact causes of leukemia.
Certain risk factors such as long-term exposure to radioactive such as radio and chemotherapy and smoking, inhaling Benzene and Formaldehyde, and the genetic preposition is associated with the increased risk of cancer.
D,. Fircanis S, the lead scientist in the cancer tram at The Miriam Hospital in the examining the risk of leukemia in long-term smokers said, "current and ever smokers have 40% (RR 1.40, 95% CI 1.22-1.60; P < 0.001) and 25% (RR 1.25, 95% CI 1.15-1.36; P < 0.001) increased risk of developing AML when compared with non-smokers" and "Intensity of smoking of <10, 10-20, 20-30, and >30 cigarettes per day was associated with RRs of AML of 1.27, 1.36, 1.55, and 1.77, respectively (P < 0.001 for trend). Duration of smoking of <20 and >20 years was associated with RRs of 1.07 and 1.44, respectively (P < 0.001 for trend)".
These results clearly suggested that the risk of leukemia is increased substantially and linearly to the years of smoking and numbers of cigarettes smoked daily
Honey is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers.
The rich golden liquid is considered one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people.
With an aim to find the natural whole food for the treatment of leukemia, scientists at the joint study led by the Mashhad University of Medical Sciences investigate the effects of the dietary combination of honey and Ardeh on chemotherapy-induced complications in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
The double-blind randomized placebo-controlled clinical-trial included a total of 107 AML patients who underwent chemotherapy for at least 30 consecutive days in Imam Reza and Ghaem teaching hospitals (Mashhad, Iran).
The treatment group was given a combination of 50 grams of honey and 150 grams of Ardehwas added to the treated group's diet for 30consecutive days, three times each day; while the untreated group was received their regular diet.
After one month, both groups were all examined and lab tests were taken by an internist and laboratory technicians.
The treatment group showed a reduction of symptoms of fever compared to the untreated group.
Patients who were given the special honey and Ardeh compound also showed significantly less gastrointestinal complications, compared to the untreated group with no side effects.
Further analysis of the treatment group, researchers said, "(honey and Ardeh compound) ameliorate gastrointestinal complications and reduce fever and neutropenia in AML patients
These results indicated that Honey and Ardeh, the easily accessible materials can be used to attenuate symptoms caused by chemotherapy in AML patients.
Additionally, in the joint study led by the Universiti Sains Malaysia to evaluate the antileukemic effect of Tualang Honey on acute and chronic leukemia cell lines, researchers showed that leukemia cell lines (K562 and MV4-11) and human mononuclear cell incubated with increasing concentrations of Tualang Honey display the presence of cell depredation followed by apoptotic bodies.
More precisely, the application of Tualang honey induced 53.9% and 50.6% apoptosis on K562 and MV4-11, respectively, and 37.4% on the human mononuclear cell.
Taken altogether, Tualang honey used alone, and common honey combined with Ardeh may be used for the prevention and adjunct therapies combined with the primary medicine for the treatment of leukemia
