Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) - FLT3 mutations
What is AML - FLT3?
Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) is one of the most common adult Leukemias and comprises 15% of pediatric acute Leukemias. Several recurrent chromosomal anomalies have been linked to specific subtypes of AML and can be identified in nearly 60% of AML cases. Conventional chromosomal analysis and FISH can detect majority of these anomalies and help in tracking response to therapy.
