    Yes there is.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=...

    There's been a study done on it.

    Keep in mind that leukemia is referring to cancer (like cervical cancer), and the virus is only one form of way to get leukemia (there's a cervical cancer virus as well, but a vaccine has been created for it). Other causes of Leukemia could range from biology to just leading an unhealthy lifestyle.

    No there is not. There are however a number of chemicals and radio isotopes that cause leukemia which can be carried in the air.

    I haven't heard of it being air-born.

    I had Leukemia as a kid, was found to have it at about 4 years old. Also had it relapse in my CNS (Central Nervous System) at about at 7 had radiation for that but have been clear of it since that they know of.

    This murine leukemia virus that may be airborne is a virus that affects mice and rats. This is not a human virus that is contagious and transmissable in humans. So the answer is no. Their is not an airborne leukemia.
