Finding New Targets for Acute Myeloid Leukemia in ChildrenLooking for genes AML needs for everyday survival turned up two strong ‘hits’ to pursue for therapeutic development.
Study Results Support Stem Cell Transplantation for Older Patients with Myelodysplastic SyndromesAlthough stem cell transplantation is the only current therapy with the potential to cure myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), it is rarely used as an initial treatment for older patients because it hasn’t been proven superior to other therapies. New research by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute investigators stands to overturn that practice.
