Malignant Regenerative Cells Induced by Chemotherapy: A Possible Cause of AML Relapse

By Riya Gandhi ‘22 Relapse of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) — or any type of cancer, for that matter — has always posed an enormous challenge to patients and physicians alike. However, a recent study conducted by researchers at McMaster University has found that it is not predominantly leukemic stem cells that induce such recurrence but rather leukemic-regenerating cells that arise post-chemotherapy. In this study, … Continue reading Malignant Regenerative Cells Induced by Chemotherapy: A Possible Cause of AML Relapse
