The Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute and the University of Cantabria lead a pioneering European study on one of the most lethal forms of childhood leukaemia

New studies show that the genome for acute lymphoblastic leukemia pro B with t translocation (4; 11) (MLL-AF4 +) is more stable than other forms.  The Stem Cell Biology, Developmental Leukemia and Immunotherapy Group led by Pablo Menéndez in collaboration with researchers from the Univesity of Cantabria have also discovered a biomarker that will be a valuable indicator of the prognostic for patients with this type of leukemia.
