The Moss Reports on leukemia (cancer of the blood) brings you a thorough and up-to-date discussion of the best results with radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, integrative, complementary and alternative treatments for leukemia.

We have separate Moss Reports on the four statistically major forms of leukemia:

  • Acute Lymphoblastic (or Lymphocytic) Leukemia (ALL)
  • Acute Myeloid (or Myelogenous) Leukemia (AML)
  • Chronic Lymphoblatic (Lymphocytic) Leukemia (CLL)
  • Chronic Myeloid (or Myelogenous) Leukemia (CML)
  • (Make sure to order the one specific to the type of leukemia you are dealing with.)

Leukemia is a very complex disease. Just as "cancer" itself is a generic term that covers abnormal growths in over 100 different types of tissue, "leukemia" is similarly a constellation of different diseases, all of which share certain characteristics. The most prominent of these is the transformation of an immature blood-forming cell into a malignant one, followed by the proliferation and accumulation of those transformed cells.

Leukemia are also classified into two fundamental divisions-acute and chronic, referring to the speed of their accumulation. The malignant cell type in acute lymphoblastic (or lymphocytic) leukemia (ALL) is derived from primitive white blood cells (WBCs) or even white blood cell precursors. (The predominant malignant cell type in chronic leukemia, on the other hand, resemble more mature cells.)

There is another way of classifying leukemias, by whether they are lymphoblastic or myeloid (or myelogenous). Myeloid leukemias are characterized by an excess of myeloblasts (i.e., immature myelocytes), whereas the more common lymphoblastic leukemia is characterized by an excess of lymphoblasts (i.e., immature lymphocytes). Acute leukemias are defined by the presence of early "blast" forms of white blood cells that become arrested at a primitive stage of their cellular development and do not mature.

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a form of leukemia in white blood cells are stuck in the early "blast" forms of development and are therefore incapable of maturing or carrying out basic functions. As a result, the bloodstream becomes clogged with immature cells that accumulate, primarily in the bone marrow cavity, ultimately crowding out the bulk of normal cells.

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a malignancy of the bone marrow in which precursors of the white blood cells (i.e., immature bone marrow cells that normally give rise to mature white blood cells) become arrested at a primitive stage in their development. Current thinking is that this malignant transformation is actually a two-stage process, during which an initial mutation occurs at one specific receptor site, which then provides a growth advantage to one particular cellular population, or clone.

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a kind of cancer in which too many otherwise necessary lymphocytes are produced by the bone marrow. But these are not normal disease-fighting cells. The lymphocytes produced in CLL have a flaw in their DNA that confers an inbuilt survival advantage to them-in fact, makes them virtually immortal. While normal cells are pre-programmed to die at a certain rate, the lymphocytes in CLL lack this ability. Instead, they remain viable indefinitely and consequently they accumulate in the blood, bone marrow, and lymphatic system, ultimately in enormous numbers.
In CLL, while the lymphocytes produced by the bone marrow for all intents and purposes look like normal lymphocytes, they are immunologically immature and are thus unable to function effectively in the body's defense. The overall result is that the number of lymphocytes in the bloodstream and bone marrow soars - yet, unlike in acute childhood leukemias, it does so relatively slowly, and without impeding the concurrent production of normal blood cells by the bone marrow.

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) affects myeloid tissue in the bone marrow, the tissue which actually gives rise to the white blood cells. Cells in CML may appear at first entirely normal. Sometimes a microscopic chromosomal examination is necessary to establish that the white cell proliferation in the blood is due to CML rather than-as may happen-due to an infection.
The essential feature of CML is a vastly increased white cell count. Normally, a person's white blood cell (WBC) count is between 5,000 and 10,000, but in CML this count can rise spectacularly, topping 50,000 to 500,000.

All Moss Report on Leukemia has been thoroughly revised for 2017. The reports features a comprehensive discussion of the treatment and prevention of this cancer of the blood making system - from the best techniques of radiation and chemotherapy to the latest complementary and alternative (CAM) approaches. New in 2017 is a discussion of how science is harnessing the immune system to fight against this cancer. This includes very encouraging results with immune checkpoint inhibitors, which is newly approved for a variety of cancers. These checkpoint blockade drugs have shown remarkable results, even in advanced disease. There is also an up-to-the-minute discussion of adoptive immunotherapy, a special process of culturing white blood cells to attack cancer that also showed remarkable, but under-appreciated, results at M.D. Anderson and elsewhere.

There is also a discussion on the new drugs specific to different forms of leukemia

  • Leukemia ALL. There is an expanded discussion of blinatumomab (Blincyto«), the lead agent in a new class of drugs called BITEs. This stands for Bi-specific T-cell Engager antibodies. These "guided missiles" are being investigated for use as an anti-ALL drug.
  • Leukemia AML. New in 2017 is a discussion of gemtuzumab (Mylotarg«), a drug that was approved, but then withdrawn, by the FDA, but that is still available through clinical trials; clofarabine (Clolar«), a drug with impressively high complete response rates; and bevacizumab (Avastin«), a commonly used cancer drug now being applied to A.M.L.
  • Leukemia CLL. New sections include a discussion of the use of the drug ibrutinib (Imbruvica«) in C.L.L. patients who have either of two particular genetic mutations. There is also a report on patients who had received ibrutinib as their sole treatment developing Pneumocystis pneumonia infection. We discuss the use of bendamustine + rituximab compared to the powerful (but toxic) combination FCR in C.L.L.

No patient with leukemia or their loved one should be without this outstanding resource.
