Eliminating cancer stem cells

25th April 2019

Research published today in Cell Stem Cell has discovered a protein which drives an aggressive form of blood cancer, acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). Inactivation of this protein selectively compromises leukaemic cells while promoting normal blood cell functions.
