ClientTed ED


Stem cells found in the bone marrow are crucial for our health. They are needed to become new blood cells that sustain and protect our bodies. When the transformation goes wrong, harmful mutations can cause the cells to start replicating without control; this type of cancer is known as leukemia.

Danilo Allegra and Dania Puggioni explain how this happens and how certain treatments provide hope for those suffering from the disease.
