Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: New research paves the way for safer leukemia treatments

(Children's Cancer Institute Australia) Researchers have discovered a new, safer way to treat a type of childhood leukaemia: T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). Published in Science Translational Medicine, this joint research by Children's Cancer Institute (Australia), VIB-KU Leuven and UK Dementia Research Institute, is an important breakthrough in the treatment of T-ALL. This involves drugs which inhibit the enzyme 'gamma-secretase'. Previously, these inhibitors were unsuitable for treating children because of their toxicity. This research may be the solution.
