    the A stands for Anemia, and the B stands for Bone Damage (Durie 6). If a doctor suspects that a person has multiple myeloma, the doctor would order testing that falls into four categories: Bone Marrow Biopsy, Blood Testing, Urine Testing, and Bone Testing. A bone marrow biopsy is when a doctor inserts a long, thin needle into the patient and then withdraws some of the bone marrow (Multiple Myeloma World 13). There are many ways to test a person’s bones including an X-ray, an MRI, a CT Scan, a Nuclear

  • Leukemi Pathology And The Signs And Symptoms

    Leukemia: Pathology and the Signs and Symptoms Leukemia, a cancer of blood-forming cells, occurs when immature or mature cells increa se in an uncontrolled manner in the bone marrow. Leukemia mostly involves the peripheral blood, and usually goes into the spleen, liver, and lymph nodes. It is a complex disease. There are several types of leukemia that can be classified depending on the type of white blood cell that is being multiplied abnormally and at the rate of which the cell is de veloping. Although

  • Informative Speech On Aplastic Anemia

    they are victims of this blood disorder. Aplastic Anemia develops when the bone marrow is damaged. Aplastic Anemia is a rare blood disorder in which the bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells, is spontaneous, and can affect anyone regardless of age, race, or gender. Body Aplastic Anemia is a blood disorder that affects the bone marrow’s production of stem cells. Bone marrow is the sponge-like material found in bones, and it produces stem cells. Specifically, stem cells clone themselves and

  • Stem Cells For Bone Regeneration

    824 Words  | 4 Pages

    Bone marrow derived cells are the most extensively researched stem cells for bone regeneration owing to their capacity to differentiate into an osteoblastic lineage in the presence of appropriate growth factors as well as regenerate bone efficiently in vivo[44]. Upon isolation from the bone marrow, these stem cells are characterized. These cells are generally easy to isolate and passage[45]. However, relatively low abundance of BM-MSCs necessitates extensive in vitro expansion, which diminishes the

  • Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia is a Rapid Growing Cancer

    2021 Words  | 8 Pages

    Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), a fast growing cancer that can spread throughout the body very quickly and be life threatening if left untreated and is caused by lymphocyte defects. To understand ALL, it is necessary to understand the cardiovascular system. The human cardiovascular system consists of heart, blood and blood vessels. The heart is a muscle that pumps blood through two major blood vessels; arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart whereas veins carry deoxygenated blood towards

    the position of the lymph nodes. A CT scan or Ultrasound shows lymph nodes in the stomach area, abnormalities in the liver or spleen problems. A lymphograph can detect pelvic and abdominal problems, bone marrow biopsy test the bone marrow as the Hodgkin’s disease often spreads to the marrow. A laparotomy involves the surgeon opening one’s abdomen to see the organs. At times the spleen is removed as it is often infected with Hodgkin’s disease and it being gone often helps

  • Stem Cells And Its Effect On Human Cells

    1369 Words  | 6 Pages

    Stem cells are cells that have the ability to generate other cells. If research continues going the way it is now stem cells could potentially reduce the need for insulin in diabetics and treat various conditions and diseases. The discovery of stem cells, how they differentiate and their potential use in medicine are very important stories. Stem Cells can be obtained two different ways, one from embryos, which are called embryonic stem cells, and one from adults, called adult stem cells. Stem cell

  • The Way the Immune System Works Essay

    1507 Words  | 7 Pages

    THE IMMUNE SYSTEM Definition of the Immune System The human immune system is a collective network of tissues, glands, and organs that work in a coordinated effort with each other to guard our bodies from foreign antigens such as viruses, bacteria, and infection causing microorganisms. For the immune system to work properly, two things must happen: first, the body must recognize that it has been invaded, either by pathogens or toxins or by some other threat. Second, the immune response must be

  • Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)

    1155 Words  | 5 Pages

    Para-neoplastic Syndrome associated with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) Introdution: Leukemia is a type of cancer of the blood or bone marrow characterized by an abnormal increase of immature white blood cells called "blasts". It is a broad term covering a spectrum of diseases. Leukemia is believed to be the result of deregulation of normal hematopoiesis. There can be several types of leukemia depending upon the cell type being affected: 1. Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) 2. Chronic lymphocytic

  • Hematopoietic Stem Cells

    720 Words  | 3 Pages

    Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) resides within the bone marrow, which serves as niche for the maintenance of HSCs. HSC niche maintain a balance between proliferation and differentiation not only during steady state of tissue homeostasis but also in stress conditions-like during bleeding, viral or bacterial infection or loss of blood cells caused due to toxins or chemotherapeutic agents. Identification of HSC niche has been a major challenge since years due to high mobility of HSCs. Unlike the other
