Acute leukaemia

Acute leukaemia involves abnormal cell growth in the haematopoietic system characterised by significant proliferation and accumulation of immature cells, firstly in the bone marrow and subsequently in the blood, with a great degree of clinical and biological heterogeneity. Acute leukaemias are clonal proliferations (tumour cells that originate from a single initial cell and accumulate various genetic mutations that result in development of the disease) of altered blood stem cells. In normal circumstances, multipotent stem cells give rise to haematopoietic cells, which give rise to blood cells via a process of cell proliferation and differentiation mediated by the cell’s own mechanisms and by the surrounding tissues. Under normal conditions, blood cells migrate to the blood and tissues and are indispensable for the body to function correctly.
