Treatments for Pediatric CML (Chronic Myeloid Leukemia)
Many times, children with CML are already extremely ill when they are first diagnosed with leukemia. For example, a shortage of normal white blood cells may have led to serious infections, or low platelet levels may have caused severe bleeding. These critical health issues must be addressed before CML treatment can be initiated.
