Leukemia is a malignant disease which continues to play a cutting edge role in the discovery of new basic knowledge about the malignant process and about the potential for controlling these malignant diseases.
Molecular Genetics and Therapy of Leukemiapresents contributions by leading investigators and scientific contributors to such topics as chromosome 16, chromosome 5, the BCL-2 gene, 11q23 breakpoint leukemias, the p-53 suppressor gene and oncogene, hematopoietic stem cells, cytokines, detection of minimal residual disease in acute lymphoblastic leukemia, autologous marrow transplantation, the retinoblastoma gene, allogeneic bone marrow transplant and chemotherapy of acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
