Abstract

Numerous studies have reported alterations in the plasma lipid profiles of leukemia patients. However, there are several inconsistencies in these reports. The present review highlights and compiles findings from different research groups regarding association of plasma lipoprotein levels with the risk of developing leukemia. We have also discussed the clinical significance of plasma lipid profiles in management of leukemia. Furthermore, the potential role of plasma lipids in promoting leukemogenesis is also highlighted.
