Hox B4
This invention is a novel therapy for cancer using Hox B4 to induce apoptosis in leukemia cell lines. Background & Unmet Need: B‑cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia is the most common type of leukemia in adults. The B cells grow uncontrollably and invade the bone marrow and blood where they crowd out the healthy cells. There is a need to...
