   New gene therapy treatment for Sickle Cell Anemia reverses symptoms in adultsNew gene therapy treatment for Sickle Cell Anemia reverses symptoms in adults
 
After over a decade of preclinical research and development, a new gene therapy treatment for Sickle Cell Anemia is reversing disease symptoms in two adults and showing early potential for transportability to resource-challenged parts of the world where SCA is most common.
 
   Researchers identify powerful inhibitor of epigenetic factors that promote acute myeloid leukemiaResearchers identify powerful inhibitor of epigenetic factors that promote acute myeloid leukemia
 
Some severe forms of leukemia develop because proteins on the epigenetic level lose their regulative function. Now, in a broad international collaboration, UK researchers have identified molecules that can effectively inhibit the dysregulated proteins.
 
 Symptoms of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)
 
Symptoms of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)CLL has many signs and symptoms and can sometimes be asymptomatic, therefore it is not uncommon for the disease to be discovered incidentally.
 
 
 How is Vitamin-B12 Related to Anemia?

Types of anemia associated with vitamin B-12 are pernicious anemia, macrocytic anemia, and megaloblastic anemia. Pernicious anemia can cause vitamin B-12 deficiency, which can then lead to megaloblastic anemia and macrocytic anemia.
 
 
 New method could improve outcome of leukemia patients receiving stem-cell transplants
 
New method could improve outcome of leukemia patients receiving stem-cell transplantsStem-cell transplantation is an effective form of therapy to fight leukemia. In many cases, however, the transferred immune cells of the donor also attack the recipients' healthy tissue - often with fatal consequences.
