Rewiring the biology of leukaemia cells to reverse drug resistance

20th April 2022

Researchers from Barts Cancer Institute at Queen Mary University of London have identified a way to reverse resistance to a group of cancer drugs, known as kinase inhibitors, in leukaemia cells. By rewiring the inner workings of the cancer cells, the team was able to prime leukaemia cells for sensitivity to treatment in the laboratory.

Mapping the emergence of treatment resistance in leukaemia

28th September 2021

Research led by Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London, has identified a new role for a group of cells called adipocytes in contributing to treatment resistance in a type of leukaemia. Published in Nature Communications, the findings broaden the understanding of resistance pathways in blood cancer cells, which is critical for developing novel treatment strategies to improve outcomes for people with leukaemia.
