  • Acute myelogenous leukemia

    Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) or acute myeloid leukemia is abnormal proliferation of immature white blood cells (WBCs) in the bone marrow (the soft tissue inside the bones that forms different types of blood cells). Thus formed abnormal WBCs replace normal WBCs resulting in anemia, infection, and may even lead to death.

    Any agent that prevents blood clotting is called an anticoagulant.

  • Apheresis

    Apheresis is a technique where selective elements are separated from the blood of the donor or patient and the remaining components are transfused back to them.

  • Aplastic anemia

    Aplastic anemia is a disorder resulting from the inability of bone marrow to produce enough blood cells as bone marrow's stem cells get damaged. Bone marrow inside the bones makes stem cells that further develop into red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The scarcity of blood cells causes infection, bleeding, and may even lead to death.
