These are abnormal and don’t have the infection-fighting properties of the regular white blood cells. These leukemic cells lack the infection-fighting features of the regular white blood cells. When the bone marrow increases the white blood cell production in the bone marrow these stop the other vital cellular activity which results in fewer cells that carry out their regular functions e.g. blood clotting and supplying oxygen to the body. The medical condition eventually reduces the ability of the body to fight dangerous infections.
