In brief: Types of cells

White blood cells are different with different mechanisms to pretect body from infections.
Acute myeloid leukemia arise from a type of white cells called myeloid series or neutophils, cut lymphoblastic leukemiaa arise from lymph type of white cells. These two types of leukemia have different treatments and the outcome or expectations are very different, none is better than the other in general.
