When this happens, infection, anemia, or easy bleeding may occur.
These programs may not offer a cure, but they can help to improve the quality of life and at the same time reduce the overwhelming control that pain can have of daily life. What do you think is going to happen to people like myself that depend on opiates just to get through a day because of what might happen with REMS (Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies)?Chronic myelogenous leukemia (also called CML or chronic granulocytic leukemia) is a slowly progressing blood and bone marrow disease that usually occurs during or after middle age, and rarely occurs in children. The bone is made up of compact bone, spongy bone, and bone marrow. Spongy bone is found mostly at the ends of bones and contains red marrow.Bone marrow is found in the center of most bones and has many blood vessels.A blood stem cell may become a myeloid stem cell or a lymphoid stem cell. A myeloid stem cell becomes one of three types of mature blood cells: In CML, too many blood stem cells become a type of white blood cell called granulocytes.These granulocytes are abnormal and do not become healthy white blood cells. The leukemia cells can build up in the blood and bone marrow so there is less room for healthy white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets.
