Protein suppression stops leukaemia growth in mice

Leukaemia causing stem cells have been eliminated in mice by suppressing two proteins.
Leukaemia causing stem cells have been eliminated in mice by suppressing two proteins. Cancer stem cells are thought to be responsible for relapses in leukaemia. The findings… https://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/protein-suppression-stops-leukaemia-growth-in-mice/
