Quantifying Minimal Residual Disease in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia
Quantifying Minimal Residual Disease in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia
Article

Thanks to advances in therapeutics, chronic myeloid leukemia has been transformed from a deadly cancer into a manageable, chronic condition. However, patients have to stay on these drugs their whole lives, as there isn't a diagnostic test sensitive enough to detect traces of the disease that threaten a relapse. This article delves into the unmet need for such a test, and explains why droplet digital PCR (ddPCR) is a strong candidate that may fill this gap.

A (Lab)Step Towards Reproducible Science
A (Lab)Step Towards Reproducible Science
Article

The reproducibility crisis is holding back science. London-based Labstep, a start-up out of Oxford University, think that their tool can help make science more open and reproducible. That claim has now been given some concrete evidence with the announcement that the research contingent of the MRC Unit The Gambia at LSHTM will be trialling Labstep across their Banjul-based facility.
