(Instituto de Medicina Molecular) An international team of researchers has found a group of mutations involved in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL), and showed that certain drugs, already in clinical use to treat other diseases, can eliminate the cells carrying these mutations. Results will be published next week in Nature Genetics and may promote the development of novel therapeutic approaches against leukemia. www.eurekalert.org
