Loss of STK11/LKB1 Drives Progression to Leukemia in Myeloproliferative Neoplasms
Results from a CRISPR/Cas9 screening study presented at the 2020 ASH Annual Meeting suggest that STK11 could serve as a potential candidate tumor suppressor gene in patients with post-MPN acute myeloid leukemia.
Imetelstat Improves Rate of Durable Transfusion Independence in Patients With Lower-Risk MDS
Treatment with imetelstat was associated with a clinically meaningful rate of transfusion independence in heavily transfused patients with lower-risk MDS, according to study results published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
Machine Learning Detects Prognostic Associations Between Morphologic and Genetic Changes in MDS
A new artificial intelligence–based technique was able to establish correlations between genetic and morphologic biomarkers, revealing diagnostically and prognostically important relationships, according to results published in Blood.
