Presence of protein marks toxicity in leukemia
the ONA take:
A recent study examined the protein inositol polyphosphate 4-phosphatase II (INPP4B) in patients that had been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.
When examined, the data indicated that the presence of this protein indicates a likely toxicity effect associated with chemotherapy.
Chemotherapy is a standard clinic treatment for this disease, but patients can now be screened for inositol polyphosphate 4-phosphatase II and recommended for other treatments less likely to be toxic as needed.
The researchers hope to explore exactly how the protein behaves in cancer cells, specifically related to chemoresistance, so the protein and pathway may one day be effectively targeted.
This research was led by PhD student Sewa Rijal from the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences (FMNHS), under the supervision of Professor Andrew Wei and Professor Christina Mitchell, Dean of FMNHS. Findings were published in the journal Blood.
Presence of this protein indicates a likely toxicity effect associated with chemotherapy.
