I admit I have been negligent.
I asked what vaccines he needed. There were two. I have already forgotten one of them. The other one stuck in my mind. I knew before that this existed. But, it brings up a real question.
Why do they have a vaccine for Feline Leukemia and not one for human leukemia?
Something I am learning about CML
Chronic myelogenous leukemia has 3 phases.
As the amount of blast cells increases in the blood and bone marrow, there is less room for healthy white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. This may result in infections, anemia, and easy bleeding, as well as bone pain and pain or a feeling of fullness below the ribs on the left side. The number of blast cells in the blood and bone marrow and the severity of symptoms determine the phase of the disease.
In chronic phase CML, fewer than 10% of the cells in the blood and bone marrow are blast cells.
In accelerated phase CML, 10% to 19% of the cells in the blood and bone marrow are blast cells.
In blastic phase CML, 20% or more of the cells in the blood or bone marrow are blast cells. When tiredness, fever, and an enlarged spleen occur during the blastic phase, it is called blast crisis.
