BLOOD AND BONE MARROW CANCERS

(Leukemia, Lymphoma, Myeloma)

A confident and actionable diagnosis

OUR COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT APPROACH

Blood cancers affect the production and function of blood cells, and often start in the bone marrow. In most cases, the normal blood cell development process is interrupted by uncontrolled growth of an abnormal type of blood cell. These cancerous cells prevent the blood components from performing their vital functions, like fighting off infection or clotting.

ADVANCES

The medical community has made exciting strides in the diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders. Markers have been identified that help distinguish similar disorders that were previously difficult to separate. Targeted therapies are now available which match the cancer cells’ molecular profile, so that they (unlike traditional radiation and chemotherapy) fight the disease while minimizing harm to normal cells.
