Mechanisms of Chemotherapy Resistance in T-ALL
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The goals of this study are to unravel the molecular mechanisms underlying leukemic transformation and chemotherapy resistance in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). Towards this end, a cohort of T-ALL lymphoblast specimens was collected at the time of initial T-ALL diagnosis (prior to the start of therapy) from children enrolled on contemporary clinical trials, Children's Oncology Group study AALL0434 and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute 05-001. Samples were analyzed using targeted exon sequencing and RNA sequencing analysis. Results of these analyses form the basis of studies that have been submitted for publication, and will be linked to this entry once published.
