FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. and PORTLAND, Ore., June 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Medco Health Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MHS) and MolecularMD Corp. today announce the launch of a personalized medicine program for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients.
Scientists at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research discovered a molecule called c-Abl that has a known role in leukemia also has a hand in Alzheimerâ€™s disease. Manhasset, NY (PRWEB) May 26, 2011 After decades of studying the pathological process that wipes out large volumes of memory, scientists at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research discovered a molecule called c-Abl that has a known role in leukemia also has a hand in Alzheimerâ€™s disease.
Speaking at the UK National Stem Cell Network conference in York later today (31 March), Professor Tessa Holyoake from the University of Glasgow will discuss a brand new approach to treating chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) in which a small number of cancer cells persist despite effective therapy thus preventing cure.
While the median age at diagnosis for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is over 60 years old and incidence increases dramatically with age,limited data are available about the long-term outcome for older patients treated with imatinib, the standard first-line therapy used to treat CML.
Patients taking imatinib (Gleevec) for CML, or chronic myelogenous leukemia, and in remission after two years of treatment, have a mortality rate similar to that of the general population according to a study published online [date] in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
BLUE BELL, Pa., Jan. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) was transformed from a fatal disease to a chronic condition by the development of a drug known as imatinib, which targets the protein that drives this disease (BCR-ABL).
A new drug appears to help chronic myeloid leukemia patients who are out of treatment options after first- and second-line drugs have failed them or because their cancer cells have a mutation that makes them resistant from the start.
Over the past decade, significant advances have been made in the treatment of leukemia through the ongoing development of gene-based targeted therapies.
