Atypical chronic myelogenous leukemia (aCML)is a subtype of myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative diseases (myelodysplastic/chronic myeloproliferative syndromes, MDS/MPN), it occurs in the elderly, the incidence rate about 1/100, 000, or less. In brief, aCML is characterized by peripheral leukocytosis, circulating immature granulocytes, obvious abnormalities, and abnormal clone cells without Ph chromosome and bcr/abl fusion gene. Overall, aCML is generally associated with poor outcome, and no special drug has so far proved to be effective in this disorder. In this report we summarize our experience with decitabine (5-aza-2- deoxycytidine) in a patient diagnosed with aCML.Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature.
Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
