Many people fighting a very aggressive form of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) don’t survive more than five years. These very sick patients are often unable to receive the only cure — a bone marrow transplant. Now, an international team of scientists report on a long-overlooked part of a leukemic cell’s internal machinery, where they may have found a key to treating the aggressive blood cancer.
