  • Dana-Farber researchers report using a pediatric chemotherapy regimen to treat young adults ages 18-50 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia significantly improved their outcomes compared to what has historically been achieved with "adult" treatment protocols.

  • Dana-Farber scientists report in the Journal of Clinical Investigation they have developed a tumor vaccine based on the patient’s tumor to create a strong and selective immune response in some chronic lymphocytic leukemia patients.

  • The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Dana-Farber joined together to establish the Blood Cancer Research Partnership, an innovative program bringing together a network of sites for clinical trial testing of blood cancer therapies in community oncology settings across the country.

  • Dana-Farber scientists have safely shut down breast cancer and a form of leukemia in mice by targeting abnormal proteins to which the cancers are "addicted."

  • Dana-Farber and Broad Institute researchers for the first time are able to show the past, present, and future of CLL tumors.

  • Dana-Farber Cancer Institute scientists provide the first statistically-based guidelines for determining whether stem cell transplant is appropriate for patients older than 60 with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)

  • An analysis of two dozen clinical studies finds most adults with poor-risk and intermediate-risk acute myeloid leukemia benefit from allogeneic stem cell transplants.

  • Researchers report that patients with high-risk acute AML who received a cancer vaccine after a stem cell transplant had few complications and mounted a strong immune system attack on the disease.

  • A new study charts the "genomic biography" of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, identifying gene mutations driving its growth, and tracing the shift in mutations as the disease progresses and develops resistance to chemotherapy, demonstrating the power of sequencing DNA in a large group of tumor tissue samples.

  • Preclinical data from four studies presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology highlight potential treatment opportunities for acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a blood cancer accounting for approximately 20 percent of all childhood leukemias and 32 percent of adult leukemias. The research focuses on multiple vulnerabilities, including aspects of the cells' metabolism, internal communications and ability to transport proteins.
