There are 4 types of leukemia, they are: Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML), Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL), Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).

The ICD9 code for unspecified blood cancer (leukemia) is 208, "Leukemia of unspecified cell type". The specific leukemias have codes from 204-207, i.e.: (204) Lymphoid leukemia (204.0) Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (204.1) Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (205) Myeloid leukemia (205.0) Acute myelogenous leukemia (205.1) Chronic myelogenous leukemia (206) Monocytic leukemia (207) Other specified leukemia (207.0) Acute erythremia and erythroleukemia (207.1) Chronic erythremia (207.2) Megakaryocytic leukemia

Acute Monocytic Leukemia is a subtype of Acute myeloid leukemia. I think Acute Myeloid Leukemia has up to 8 sub types depending on which cells are affected.

Chronic Leukemia'sin chronic leukemia, the leukemia cells come from mature, abnormal cells. The cells thrive for too long and accumulate. The cells grow slowly.Acute Leukemia'sacute leukemia, on the other hand, develops from early cells, called "blasts". Blasts are young cells that divide frequently. In acute leukemia cells, they don't stop dividing like their normal counterparts do.The remaining two types refer to the type of cells in which the leukemia started from.Myelogenous LeukemiaMyelogenous leukemia develops from myeloid cells. The disease can either be chronic or acute, referred as chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), or acute myelogenous leukemia (ALL).Lymphocytic LeukemiaLymphocytic leukemia develops from cells called lymphoblasts or lymphocytes in the blood marrow. The disease can be acute or chronic, referred as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), or acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL).

There are many symptoms of myeloid leukemia. Some of the symptoms of myeloid leukemia include fever, bone pain, pale skin, shortness of breath, and frequent infections.

Sadly, over 5,001,000 people are diagnosed with leukemia each year, according to a 2008 report from the World Health Organization. Acute Myeloid (Myelogenous) Leukemia occurs in approximately 30% of all new diagnoses, or approximately 1,500,300 cases a year.

Chronic and Acute. Chronic worsens slowly, acute worsens quickly. Chronic leukemias are Chronic Lymphoblasitc Leukemia andChronic Myeloid Leukemia. Acute leukemias are Acute Lymphoblastice Leukemia and Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

The most common leukemia in a man above 40 is Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Chronic Myeloid Leukemia affects genes in the blood cells. Abnormal chromosomes develop and create new genes, these genes allow diseased blood cells to survive. You can learn more about Chronic Myeloid Leukemia at the Mayo Clinic website.

I believe Leukemia has to do with blood, and therefore cells. So, I do not believe so.

Myeloid cell is a bone marrow stem cell that is the precursor of red cells, platelets, granulocytes (type of white cells), and monocytes (cells which engulf microbes). Cancerous transformation of the meyloid cell gives rise to myeloid leukemia.

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) often involves the treatment of chemotherapy. This chemotherapy often has two stages: induction and postremission therapy.

There are four major types of leukemia:AcuteChronicLymphocyticMyeloid -In acute leukemia, the bone marrow cells don't mature properly. These immature cells continue to reproduce and crowd out normal cells. Some types of acute leukemia respond well to treatment and many patients are cured. Other types have a less favorable outlook. In chronic leukemia the cells look mature, but they are not really normal and they can't fight infection they way they should. Also, the cells live too long, build up, and crowd out normal bone marrow cells.Lymphocytic and myeloid (or myelogenous) refer to the different cell types from which leukemias start. Lymphocytic leukemias develop from lymphocytes in the bone marrow. Myeloid leukemia mainly develops from other types of white blood cells such as granulocytes or monocytes.Because leukemia does not usually form tumors, imaging tests are not always helpful. Imaging studies might be done in people with ALL, but they are done more often to look for infections or other problems rather than for the leukemia.

Risk factors are any factor that would affect the chance that you would get a disease. Some Risk factors of Acute Myeloid Leukemia are but not limited to: smoking, certain chemical exposures, radiation exposure, certain blood disorders, congenital syndromes, having an identical twin with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, gender, and uncertain, unproven, or controversial risk factors.

Janet Frame died at age 79 of acute myeloid leukemia.

The cancer, Acute Myeloid Leukemia, begins in the bone marrow. The cancer develops quickly in the soft tissue's white blood cells.

Is the genetic abnormality which is a characteristic of a haematological malignancy, chronic myeloid leukemia.

Either Multiple Myeloma OR Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

Kay Kendall died on September 6, 1959, in London, England, UK of myeloid leukemia.

Michaelina Bellamy died on April 7, 2012, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA of acute myeloid leukemia.

Trevor Szold died on April 26, 2010, in San Diego, California, USA of acute myeloid leukemia.

According researched information: M-E is the ratio of myeloid to erythroid precursors in bone marrow. Normally it varies from 2:1 to 4:1. An increased ratio is found in infections, chronic myelogenous leukemia, or erythroid hypoplasia. A decreased ratio may mean a depression of leukopoiesis or normoblastic hyperplasia depending on the overall amount of cells in the sample of the bone marrow.
