Leukemia is a cancer of the white blood cells. According to some statistics, millions of children and adults around the world suffer from this disease, and bout 90% of people with it are diagnosed in adults. If the child experiences it, large numbers of abnormal white blood cells will be produced in the bone marrow. These cells are defective so that they cannot perform their proper role of protecting the body against disease. It will affect the body’s production of other types of blood cells such as red blood cells and platelets, which will further cause anemia (low numbers of red cells) and bleeding problems.

It is reported that about 25% of all childhood cancers have this disease, and 2,200 American young people are influenced by it every year. Generally speaking, the leukemia includes acute and chronic form. It is common that the younger children ages 2 to 8 will get it, with a peak incidence at age 4. But all age groups can be impacted by it. If the children have had inherited certain genetic problems such as Li-Fraumeni syndrome, Down syndrome, Kleinfelter syndrome, neurofibromatosis, ataxia telangectasia, or Fanconi’s anemia, they will face a higher risk of developing leukemia.

The people with this disease will be bruised, bleed excessively, or develop pinprick bleeds easily. Furthermore, they also undergo the frequent infection, ranging from infected tonsils, sores in the mouth, or diarrhea to life-threatening pneumonia or opportunistic infections. However, the reasons why so people have it are natural and artificial ionizing radiation, a few viruses such as human T-lymphotropic virus, and some chemicals, notably benzene and alkylating chemotherapy agents for previous malignancies. When the people with it visit the doctors, they will tell some detailed information about it. When it comes to the stem cell treatment, the researchers find that two antagonistic proteins help keep this cancer at bay, pointing to new potential treatments.

The stem cell treatment is effective for organs and tissue’s restoration, and for the fight against the incurable and obstinate diseases. It can treat various diseases, including diabetes mellitus, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, cancer, blood diseases and many others, including rare genetic and hereditary diseases. The news reports that the research for stem cells could speed up attempts to wipe out cancer by targeting cancer stem cells that drive the disease, which means that the stem cell plays an important role the cancer treatment and treatment of hereditary diseases.

Along with the accelerated pace of life, unhealthy diet and bad living environment, more and more people suffer from some multiple Myeloma. Due to development of medical technology, more and more experts adopt the stem cell treatment for many diseases. This technology is an intervention strategy introducing new adult stem cells into damaged tissue. Many medical researchers agree that stem-cell treatments have the potential to change the face of human disease and alleviate suffering, which means a good news for the patients. The stem cells have an ability to self-renew and give rise to subsequent generations with variable degrees of differentiation capacities, which offers significant potential for generation of tissues that can potentially replace diseased and damaged areas in the body, with minimal risk of rejection and side effects.
