AML is also called acute myelogenous leukemia, acute myeloblastic leukemia, acute granulocytic leukemia, and acute nonlymphocytic leukemia.

Tendon , tissue that attaches a muscle to other body parts, usually bones. Tendons are the connective tissues that transmit the mechanical force of muscle contraction to the bones; the tendon is firmly connected to muscle fibres at one end and to components of the bone at its other end. Tendons are remarkably strong, having one of the highest tensile strengths found among soft tissues. Their great strength, which is necessary for withstanding the stresses generated by muscular contraction, is attributed to the hierarchical structure, parallel orientation, and tissue composition of tendon fibres.
Donating Stem Cells and Bone Marrow
There are tons of eye products that we can choose from to enhance our looks. But do we know how and where to apply them? Celebrity makeup artist Ariane Poole is here today to discuss the best techniques and products she has encountered. Enjoy the show! In this video, Ariane shows us a new application process that she recently stumbled upon using a magnifying mirror.
Bone remodeling , continuing process of synthesis and destruction that gives bone its mature structure and maintains normal calcium levels in the body. While the osteoclasts resorb bone at various sites, other cells called osteoblasts make new bone to maintain the skeletal structure. During childhood, bone formation outpaces destruction as growth proceeds. After skeletal maturity is reached, the two processes maintain an approximate balance. Osteoclasts act on the inner surfaces of bones, in the marrow cavity and the spaces of cancellous bone , to widen these cavities; they also act on the outer surfaces to reduce bony processes, such as the epiphyseal swellings at the ends of the long bones of the arm and leg.
