Latest Childhood leukemia Stories
Through genetic engineering of laboratory models, researchers at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center have uncovered a vulnerability in the way cancer cells diverge from normal regenerating cells that may help treat children with leukemia as reported in the journal PNAS on June 3, 2013.
A research team from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania used a novel cell therapy to reprogram the immune cells of two leukemia patients, resulting in a complete remission of the disease and a total lack of evidence of cancer cells in their bodies.
After an intensive three-year hunt through the genome, medical researchers have pinpointed mutations that leads to drug resistance and relapse in the most common type of childhood cancer—the first time anyone has linked the disease's reemergence to specific genetic anomalies.
Researchers at The University of Western Ontario have identified genes that may be important for preventing childhood leukemia.
An experimental drug lessens symptoms of a rare form of childhood leukemia and offers significant insight into the cellular development of the disease, according to findings from a new UCSF study.

A study led by Dr Marcus Cooke at the University of Leicester and funded by World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) UK is looking at whether consuming caffeine during pregnancy might affect the unborn baby's risk of developing leukemia in childhood.
