The stem cell's changed DNA gives the malignant (cancerous) cell a growth and survival advantage over a normal stem cell. The resulting uncontrolled growth of white cells, if left untreated, will lead to a massive increase in their concentration in the blood. CML does not completely interfere with the development of mature red cells, white cells and platelets; these cells can generally continue to function normally. This is an important distinction from acute leukemia and accounts for the less severe early course of chronic leukemias.

About 4,570 people in the United States will learn they have CML in 2007 in the United States. About 21,501 people in the United States are living with CML. There will be an estimated 490 deaths from CML this year.

About The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, headquartered in White Plains, NY, with 68 chapters in the United States and Canada, is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. The Society's mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Since its founding in 1949, the Society has invested more than $550 million in research specifically targeting leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Last year alone, the Society made 5.1 million contacts with patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals.

For more information about blood cancer, visit http://www.LLS.org or call the Society's Information Resource Center (IRC), a call center staffed by master's level oncology social workers and health educators who provide information, support and resources to patients and their families and caregivers.
