Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML)

In CML, patients have an abnormal chromosome in their blood cells called the Philadelphia chromosome, which was discovered at Penn.

CML is chronic, slow-growing and takes longer to develop. There are some rare cases in which CML can progress into acute leukemia, which needs immediate medical attention.
