City of Hope is a leader in leukemia research, committed to bringing the latest scientific findings into clinical practice as quickly as possible. With our extensive number of clinical trials, patients here have access to novel treatments available only at City of Hope.
Our current focus in leukemia research is a better understanding of leukemia stem cells in order to develop cures for leukemia and other hematologic malignancies. Because recent studies have demonstrated that leukemia stem cells cause leukemia, the objective must now be to eradicate leukemia stem cells, rather than just the mature leukemia cells addressed by current therapies. Eradication of the leukemia stem cells may actually produce cures.
