Treatment Options for Leukemia - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: You or someone you care about may have been diagnosed with leukemia. This video will help you understand some of the available treatment options. Leukemia is a cancer that originates from blood cells while they are forming, usually white blood cells. In leukemia, blood-forming cells in the bone marrow make many cancerous white blood cells that don't work properly. This weakens your immune system. Your doctor will make a treatment plan specifically for your leukemia. It will be based on the type of leukemia, your symptoms, age, overall state of health, and other factors. Treatment options may include one or more of the following. chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and stem cell transplant. Chemotherapy uses drugs that travel through the bloodstream to kill fast-growing cells like cancer cells. Another treatment option is radiation therapy. It uses radiation to kill cancer cells or stop them from growing. The target area of the radiation varies depending on the stage and type of leukemia. The type of radiation therapy used for leukemia is external radiation. It uses a machine that aims radiation at the cancer from outside the body. Target therapy uses drugs that aim for specific targets or markers on cancer cells. Since cancer cells may have more of these markers than normal cells do, targeted therapy may affect cancer cells more than normal cells. When targeted therapy drugs attach to the markers on cancer cells, the cancer cells may stop growing and dividing. Immunotherapy can help your immune system fight leukemia. For example, monoclonal antibodies are laboratory-produced versions of proteins that your immune system makes to fight bacteria, viruses, chemicals, and other foreign substances. Monoclonal antibodies can be designed to attach to markers on leukemia cells and become part of the immune system attacking the leukemia. When attached to immune cells, monoclonal antibodies can help recognize and destroy the leukemia cells. A stem cell transplant replaces blood-forming cells that were damaged or destroyed during your cancer treatment with either your or a healthy donor's stem cells. First, healthy stem cells are collected from you or a donor. Then the stem cells are stored while you receive treatment for cancer such as chemotherapy or radiation to kill all your blood cells. After these treatments are complete, the healthy stem cells are given to you. In your body, these stem cells provide a healthy supply of future blood cells. Your doctor may prescribe a combination of the treatments we've discussed or different treatment options than those mentioned here. As you deal with a diagnosis of leukemia, continue to talk to your doctor and your cancer care team.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"

"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner. Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable luxury, but a routine necessity."

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."
