WORLD-CLASS CANCER TREATMENT WITH A PERSONAL TOUCH
Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Also known as “ALL”, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia is a quickly progressing disease in which too many immature white blood cells, called ‘lymphoblasts’ are found in the blood and bone marrow. It is also sometimes referred to as ‘Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia’.
Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Also know as “AML”, Acute Myeloid Leukemia is a quickly progressing disease in which too many immature blood-forming cells are found in the blood and bone marrow. It is also sometimes referred to as ‘Acute Myelogenous Leukemia’ or ‘Acute Non-lymphocytic Leukemia’.
Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia
This form of leukemia is a sub-type of AML in which too many immature and mature white blood cells called ‘granulocytes’ are found in the blood and bone marrow. It is also sometimes referred to as ‘Acute Granulocytic Leukemia’.
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
Often referred to as “CLL”, this form of leukemia occurs when abnormal lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell) slowly grow out of control and replace normal lymphocytes in the bone marrow and lymph nodes. CLL cells are not able to fight infection as normal lymphocytes do.
Chronic Myeloid Leukemia
This form of leukemia is a slowly progressing disease in which too many white blood cells are made in the bone marrow. It is also referred to as ‘Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia’ and ‘Chronic Granulocytic Leukemia’.
Germ Cell Tumors
These tumors are neoplasms that arise from germ cells and can be cancerous or non-cancerous tumors. Germ cells normally occur inside the gonads (ovaries and testis).
Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (Hodgkin’s Disease)
This is a malignant disease of the lymphatic system that is characterized by painless enlargement of lymph nodes, the spleen, or other lymphatic tissue. It is sometimes accompanied by symptoms such as fever, weight loss, fatigue, and night sweats.
Multiple Myeloma is a cancer that starts in the plasma cells (the white blood cells that produce antibodies). It is also sometimes referred to as “MM” or ‘Plasma cell Myeloma’.
Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (Intermediate or High Grade)
These are a group of cancers of the lymphoid system and include B-cell lymphoma, Burkitt’s lymphoma, diffuse cell lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, mycosis fungoides, post-transplantation lymphoperoliferative disorder, small non-cleaved cell lymphoma, and T-cell lymphoma.
Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (Low Grade)
These are a group of slightly different lymphomas that tend to grow and spread slowly. They include ‘Chronic Lymphcytic Lymphoma’ and ‘Follicular small-cleaved cell Lymphoma’. The group of lymphomas is sometimes referred to as “indolent lymphomas”.
Mantle Cell Lymphoma
This is a sub-group of the Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma group of B-cell lymphomas where too many abnormal B-cells that are unable to fight infection accumulate in the lymph nodes and spleen, rendering the lymphoid system to be dysfunctional.

A biopsy is necessary to ensure the patient’s bone marrow is free of cancer cells prior to the transplant.
