Our family was told that it was not an inherited disease. Most of the specialist that I have seen find it unusual that my father had it also. My aunt (his sister) also died of acute leukemia. The best explanation I have been given is that there may be a genetic predisposition to the disease. We happen to live in the ‘backyard’ of a chemical company that produces pesticides and lost of other nasty stuff (my father also worked there). This certainly could have contributed.
Since Michael’s comment, I have contacted NIH and plan to discuss this clinical trial with them further. I find it inspiring how informed so many of you are.
