Over the past several years, there has been an explosion in our understanding of the pathogenesis of both acute and chronic leukemia, the number of novel agents with unique mechanisms of action, and other new strategies, including immunologic approaches. Researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering continue to pursue these and other treatment approaches in our clinical trials.
Relying in part on the information that is emerging about the genetic basis of leukemia, investigators are pursuing approaches that can kill tumor cells directly, inhibit the body’s production of substances that promote their growth, or enhance the immune response against leukemic cells.
Here you can find a continually updated listing of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s current clinical trials for adults with leukemia. To learn more about a study, choose from the list below.
