    Severe inflammation among individuals with acute myeloid leukemia limits their bodies' ability to kill cancerous blood cells, according to study results.
    Researchers correlated “iScores” - a measure of each study participant's level of inflammation - with survival. They determined those with the highest scores died at least 4 years earlier than those with lower inflammation levels.
    The results suggest the iScore system can be a complementary tool for physicians and patients to measure AML severity, according to investigators.
