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.
ALL is identified in about 3,000 individuals each year aged 19 or younger in the U.S., making it the most common childhood cancer. While the cause remains largely unknown, only … Continue Reading Researchers identify inherited gene variation linked to greater acute lymphoblastic leukemia risk.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is characterized by an abrupt decline in kidney function, leading to the accumulation of toxic waste products of cellular metabolism and derangement of electrolyte balance. Despite … Continue Reading Researchers identify gene which initiates the repair of acutely injured kidneys.
Worldwide, close to a million cases of gastric cancers are diagnosed each year with some of the world’s highest incidence rates are in Asia (particularly in Korea, Japan and China). … Continue Reading Researchers identify recurrent fusion genes responsible for gastric cancer initiation.
Acute liver failure is a rare yet life-threatening disease for young children. It often occurs extremely rapidly, for example, when a child has a fever. Yet in around 50 percent … Continue Reading Researchers identify new gene responsible for liver disease.
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.
A new study of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a blood cancer that primarily affects young children, has revealed that the disease has two distinct subtypes, and provides preliminary evidence that … Continue Reading Precision medicine study reveals new subtype of childhood leukemia.
Researchers identify gene mutation that raises risk of nerve damage in leukemia patients using Vincristine.
Researchers from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have identified the first genetic variation that is associated with increased risk and severity of peripheral neuropathy following treatment with a widely used … Continue Reading Researchers identify gene mutation that raises risk of nerve damage in leukemia patients using Vincristine.
Researchers discover new molecular-based immune response which protects lungs during severe infections.
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have discovered a novel molecular mechanism that tightens the bonds between the cells that line blood vessels to form a leak-proof barrier. … Continue Reading Researchers discover new molecular-based immune response which protects lungs during severe infections.
A University of Colorado study published in the journal Stem Cells has identified a program that makes stem cells damaged by radiation differentiate into other cells that can no longer … Continue Reading Researchers reprogram stem cells after radiation, lower cancer risk.
