Newly discovered genetic link could lead to treatments for B cell lymphomas
A link between a genetic mutation and a gene regulator has been discovered that could help researchers develop new drugs for some B cell lymphomas and other hematologic cancers.
Found by researchers at the Program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine and the Immune Disease Institute at Children's Hospital Boston (PCMM/IDI), the study was published in the December 10, 2009 issue of Nature. The discovery sheds light on so-called chromosomal translocation—the movement of genes to different sections of the DNA—and how it can lead to cancer.
