Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) is typically caused when bone marrow cells develop errors in their DNA and the T-cells keep growing. Symptoms generally include bleeding gums and lumps around lymph nodes. ALL generally exploits angiogenesis and leads to the deregulation of the kinase pathway. It is treated with different drugs for the various phases of chemotherapy.
