Leukemia, or blood cancer, involves pathological alterations in the body’s hematopoietic system. In acute myeloid leukemia, it is specifically the bone marrow that is affected. In a healthy body, different … Continue Reading Previously unknown cell-death pathway mapped in leukemia cells.
Multiple myeloma, also known as myeloma, is a type of bone marrow cancer. Multiple myeloma affects the plasma cells, blood cell, inside the bone marrow. Myeloma does not take the form of a … Continue Reading Study is first to link multiple myeloma protein to extramedullary disease.
To better understand diseases with a genetic component, a popular approach is to take skin cells from patients with a disease and use enzymes to coax the cells back along … Continue Reading Researchers successfully develop leukemia-in-a-dish.
Chromosomal alterations and deletions are often observed in cancers. Recurrent genetic losses are thought to contribute to disease processes through deregulating critical cellular programs that govern proliferation and differentiation. However, … Continue Reading Researchers identify precision medicine, suppressor gene for acute myeloid leukemia.
University of California San Francisco scientists have identified characteristics of a family of daughter cells, called MPPs, which are the first to arise from stem cells within bone marrow that … Continue Reading Reseachers identify and map progenitor cells for blood and immune cell production.
Research led by the University of Michigan has identified a gene critical to controlling the body’s ability to create blood cells and immune cells from blood-forming stem cells, known as … Continue Reading Researchers identify a new gene critical to creating blood cells.
Researchers at the Stanford University have discovered that when a certain aggressive leukemia is causing havoc in the body, the solution may be to force the cancer cells to grow … Continue Reading Researchers engineer a ‘cancer differentiation therapy’ for leukemia.
Researchers at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles have shown that a select team of immune-system cells from patients with leukemia can be multiplied in the lab, creating an army of natural … Continue Reading Natural (born) killer cells battle pediatric leukemia.
The ability to reliably and safely make in the laboratory all of the different types of cells in human blood is one key step closer to reality. A group from … Continue Reading Wisconsin scientists find genetic recipe to turn stem cells to blood.
