We’d like to share this news dated of
June 19, 2014 “Researchers Use Genetic Switch To Reverse Leukemia In Mice”. It is just a laboratory method, not yet a clinical application. Anyway, it states that researchers are following in leading efforts to cure leukemia, hoping in further good news.
“Using a genetic switch system, a team of researchers has successfully reversed a type of leukemia in a mouse model of the disease. They found that switching back on a particular gene known to facilitate tumor development triggered the cancerous cells to resume normal development, leading to disease remission. The study has been published in Genes & Development”. (read more: http://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/researchers-use-genetic-switch-reverse-leukemia-mice).
