o improve the lives of patients and families worldwide."

The grant will fund the following research projects:

  • The development and testing of a compound extracted from medicinal herbs known as Oridonin and its derivatives to attack the leukemia stem cell in clinical trials.

  • The utilization of mass sequencing analyses to better understand the leukemia stem cell.

  • Identification of leukemia stem cells in acute myeloid leukemia for further research in disease progression and treatment response.

The Foundation's mission has long focused on supporting cancer research that offers patients minimally toxic treatments, said Samuel Waxman, M.D., the scientific director of the SWCRF. "Eradicating the leukemia stem cell is the next logical step to fulfilling the Foundation's mission and goal of improving the quality of life and care for cancer patients," he said.
