In the most recent study, published support of leukemia and lymphoma Research and The Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund and in the current edition of the journal Blood, the researchers said DNA of tumor samples from 21 patients scanned taken at diagnosis and then relapse. At low levels. Had the ETV6 – RUNX1 fusion and an average of 4.5 years at diagnosis in old age, with the first recurrence up to ten years later.
By analyzing driver mutations in the two phases, they confirmed the cancer cells from cells cause relapse present first diagnosis, have been derived, in most cases at low levels.. For each patient, they found an average of around eight different mutations, as copy number changes announced in the diagnosis and by 11 at relapse. Some of them were probably not important be ‘passenger ‘mutations, but a series of ‘driver’mutations – thought to be in in the development of cancer – have been identified by their frequency among the patients or previously known role in all development phases.Signaling a need for improved transitional care, nearly to one of five , Canadian, Netherlands and U.S. Chronically ill patients with of a recently hospitalization, saying they did to the hospital resume or gone to the emergency room for complications after dismissed.
