Expert Video - What are the risk factors for AML-MRC or tAML?

Expert Dr. Sandra Kurtin explains the risk factors for two types of AML, acute myeloid leukemia with myelodysplasia-related changes, or AML-MRC, and treatment-related acute myeloid leukemia, or tAML. The main risk for AML-MRC is having another bone marrow disease that can develop into AML, or certain abnormal genes. The only risk factor for tAML is treatment with radiation or specific chemotherapy drugs known to raise AML risk.
