Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Researchers pinpoint why lymphoma patients may become resistant to specific therapy

(H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute) Researchers from Moffitt Cancer Center and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have discovered a mechanism of drug resistance to Venetoclax®, also known as ABT-199, a BCL-2 targeting drug commonly used to treat chronic lymphocytic leukemia and acute myeloid leukemia. Their findings, published in the journal Cancer Cell, also suggest a possible co-treatment strategy to overcome this resistance.
