About Ph+ CML

 

CML is a disease in which the body produces cancerous white blood cells. Almost all patients with CML have an abnormality known as the Philadelphia chromosome, which produces a protein called Bcr-Abl. Bcr-Abl causes malignant white blood cells to proliferate(4). Worldwide, CML is responsible for approximately 10 to 15% of all adult cases of leukemia(5), with an incidence of one to two cases per 100,000 people per year(6).
