Leukemia definition: A progressive, malignant disease of the blood-forming organs, characterized by distorted proliferation and development of leukocytes and their precursors in the blood and bone marrow. Leukemias were originally termed acute or chronic based on life expectancy but now are classified according to cellular maturity. Acute leukemias consist of predominately immature cells; chronic leukemias are composed of more mature cells. (From The Merck Manual, 2006)

Leukemia definition: A malignant (clonal) hematologic disorder, involving hematopoietic stem cells and characterized by the presence of primitive or atypical myeloid or lymphoid cells in the bone marrow and the blood. Leukemias are classified as acute or chronic based on the degree of cellular differentiation and the predominant cell type present. Leukemia is usually associated with anemia, fever, hemorrhagic episodes, and splenomegaly. Common leukemias include acute myeloid leukemia, chronic myelogenous leukemia, acute lymphoblastic or precursor lymphoblastic leukemia, and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Treatment is vital to patient survival; untreated, the natural course of acute leukemias is normally measured in weeks or months, while that of chronic leukemias is more often measured in months or years.

These substances do not enhance the oxygen- carrying capacity of blood, but merely replace the volume. They are also used to treat dehydration.
blood/plasma substitute definition: substance that can carry oxygen to and carbon dioxide away from the tissues when introduced into the blood stream; used to replace hemoglobin in severe hemorrhage and also to perfuse isolated organs; includes perfluorocarbon emulsions and various hemoglobin solutions; also any liquid used to replace blood plasma, usually a saline solution, often with serum albumins, dextrans or other preparations which do not enhance the oxygen carrying capacity of blood, but replace volume.
Blood Component Transfusion definition: The transfer of blood components such as erythrocytes, leukocytes, platelets, and plasma from a donor to a recipient or back to the donor. This process differs from the procedures undertaken in PLASMAPHERESIS and types of CYTAPHERESIS; (PLATELETPHERESIS and LEUKAPHERESIS) where, following the removal of plasma or the specific cell components, the remainder is transfused back to the donor.
cord blood definition: blood contained in the umbilical vessels at the time of delivery of fetus; this is NOT to be used for any (human or nonhuman) fetal tissue or cells; for fetal tissues use EMBRYO/FETUS CELL/TISSUE or HUMAN FETUS TISSUE.
umbilical cord blood definition: Blood from the placenta (afterbirth) that contains high concentrations of stem cells needed to produce new blood cells.
Umbilical Cord Blood definition: Blood present in the umbilical vessels at the time of delivery. If cryopreserved at birth, cord blood can serve as a source of autologous lymphocytes for transplantation to a patient later diagnosed and treated for leukemia or lymphoma.
Filters, Blood definition: Filters designed to remove particles from blood. These filters are typically made of porous material that removes blood clots and/or foreign particles (i.e. debris) from circulating blood, permitting easy passage with minimum damage to blood components. Blood filters may be placed internally in the patient's circulatory system (i.e., intravascular) or externally to filter blood that is infused into the patient, frequently from an extracorporeal device (e.g., hemodialysis unit, cardiopulmonary bypass unit, hemofiltration device). Intravascular filters may be intended for temporary use (e.g., in the carotid artery during surgery) or as a permanent implant (e.g., vena cava filters); filters intended for external infusion of blood into the arteries may also be able to trap air bubbles.
peripheral blood definition: Blood circulating throughout the body.
BLOOD definition: A liquid tissue with the primary function of transporting oxygen and carbon dioxide. It supplies the tissues with nutrients, removes waste products, and contains various components of the immune system defending the body against infection.
Blood definition: A liquid tissue; its major function is to transport oxygen throughout the body. It also supplies the tissues with nutrients, removes waste products, and contains various components of the immune system defending the body against infection. Several hormones also travel in the blood.
