Leukemia is a condition characterized by an abnormal increase of white blood cells produced by the bone marrow and/or the lymphatic system. Depending on the malignant granulocytes or lymphocytes, leukemia is classified into myelogenous or lymphoblastic leukemia.
Bone marrow is soft tissue inside the hollow center of the major bone. including spine, pelvis, underarm, leg. etc.
Acute leukemia is a condition caused by a rapid increase in the numbers of extreme immature white blood cells that appear in the bloodstream in the other parts of the body, including tissue and organs.
Acute leukemia can also be classified into
* Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)
Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) is a type of cancer with the abnormal growth of extreme immature lymphocytes overproduced by the bone marrow and/or lymphatic system. The condition has a tendency to multiply quickly, leading to the death of normal white blood cells in the bone marrow and/or lymphatic system.
In ALL, lymphocytes appear immature in the bloodstream. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common children forms of leukemia with about 80% of all cases.
* Acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is a cancer of myelogenous lining caused by the rapid growth of abnormal granulocytes accumulated in the bone marrow, interfering with the normal blood cells. In AML, granulocytes appear immature in the bloodstream.
On finding a potential phytochemical for the treatment of leukemia, researchers examined the effect of δ-tocopherol in acute myeloid leukemia.
Compared to other leukemia cell lines, δ-T as low as 20 µM showed a strong activity on AML cell line KG-1.
The δ-T inhibition of AML cell line KG-1 was observed in a set of primary cells collected from patients newly diagnosed with AML.
Intake of tocopherols in the form of supplements should be taken with extreme care to prevent overdose acute liver toxicity.
