Abstract

When people think of leukaemia, they usually think of blood cancers that affect children. These mostly come under the category of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia – or ALL – and are different to the group of blood cancers which predominantly affect adults over the age of 60, known as acute myeloid leukaemia (AML).
