In 2014, researchers of Minnessota (United States) found the way to treat leukemia when they were treating a woman. They injected her a genetically modified strain which came of measles

Leukemia is a group of diseases that usually begins in the bone marrow and results in high numbers of abnormal white blood cells

Leukemia is subdivided into a variety of large groups. The first division is between its acute and chronic forms:-Acute leukemia is characterized by a rapid increase in the number of immature blood cells.-Chronic leukemia is characterized by the excessive buildup of relatively mature, but still abnormal, white blood cells
