The second most common form of childhood leukaemia is known as AML, and a large number of genetic mutations have been identified in it. The role played by these mutations is not fully understood yet, and this project will develop a new way of studying them, and led to more effective treatments.
Our funding is helping the team study the role played by a large number of genetic mutations that affect young people with the second most common form of childhood leukaemia.
This research project on acute myeloid leukaemia has been successfully completed. Your donations allow us to fund ground-breaking research that can improve treatments given to children with cancer. Thank you. Your help allows us to continue to find ways to drive up the chances of survival for children with cancer and reduce the toxic side effects that can affect the rest of their lives.
