Children with Leukemia Living on Texas-Mexico Border More Likely to Die than Those Elsewhere...

Children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who lived along the Texas border with Mexico were more likely to die within five years than those living in other areas of the state.

Drug Response Study of Leukemia Subtypes Advances Precise Patient-Therapy Matching

A study by researchers at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital delving into drug response across a swath of genetic subtypes of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), could provide a map for clinicians to more precisely match available treatments with a patient’s specific form of cancer.

Wash U Researchers Detail Key Transition Point from Chronic to Aggressive Leukemia

A key inhibiting molecule called DUSP6, plays an important role in overcoming the resistance secondary acute myeloid leukemia often develops in response to treatment with drugs called JAK2 inhibitors.

Sequential Drug Treatment Boosts Kinase Inhibitor Sensitivity in Leukemia

By rewiring the inner workings of the cancer cells and inhibiting a certain enzyme, researchers were able to prime acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells for sensitivity to treatment in the laboratory and help reverse the resistance of leukemia cells to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI).

Novel COVID-19 Vaccine Shows Promise for People with Leukemia and Lymphoma

Researchers have created a new vaccine against SARS-CoV-2—CoVac-1—that induces a T cell immune response in a high proportion of patients with leukemia and lymphoma.

Research Uncovers Why Some Infant Leukemia Cases Remain Untreatable

Malformed early lymphocyte precursor cells are common in treatment-resistant infant B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia and have distinct biological markers that could be targeted in future treatments, shows U.K. research.

Researchers Uncover New Approach against Childhood Leukemia

To help overcome relapse of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL), researchers from Princess Máxima Center for pediatric oncology in Utrecht, the Netherlands, collaborated with Amsterdam UMC to find new ways to tackle the disease. The researchers demonstrated in mice that blocking a protein chain reaction makes childhood leukemia cells more sensitive to an existing targeted treatment.
