Study Forms Basis for Future Precision Medicine Approaches for Sezary Syndrome
October 07, 2015
Sezary syndrome (SS), an aggressive leukemia of mature T cells, is more complicated at a molecular level than ever suspected, according to research published by the Elenitoba-Johnson Lab in Nature Communications. With a poor prognosis and limited options for targeted therapies, fighting SS needs new treatment approaches. The team’s results uncover a previously unknown, complex genomic landscape of this cancer, which can be used to design new personalized drug regimens for SS patients based on their unique genetic makeup.
