University of Melbourne’s discovery helps with the hunt for leukaemia cures

Researchers from the University of Melbourne have discovered how a form of leukaemia fights back against a groundbreaking treatment, providing vital new leads on how to outwit the deadly disease.

The team at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre has been able to grow and maintain leukaemia stem cells in a laboratory dish, making it easier and faster to test new treatments with the potential to eradicate the disease.

This advance in our understanding of leukaemia stem cells is opening doors to new treatment approaches and is likely to improve the future for leukaemia patients.
