Patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) may be able to help prevent the disease by not smoking.
Using tobacco or having previous exposure to chemotherapy or radiation may increase the risk for developing ALL, and a few inherited syndromes are also risk factors for ALL.
At the OSUCCC – James, expert researchers continually focus on studying blood cancers and prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. In fact, the OSUCCC – James is consistently paving the way in leading-edge therapies and discoveries, leading to even more highly targeted care and treatment.
Couple that with world-renowned diagnostic experts and the most advanced diagnostic techniques to enable physicians to detect ALL as early as possible, and patients are experiencing improved outcomes, faster responses to treatment and fewer side effects.
