OHSU Cancer Institute researcher discovers what fuels certain cancer mutation

aybe one of these drugs will work on the mice and is safe so that we could begin testing the drugs on patients. At this point, there is no specific treatment for polycythemia vera cancer patients. Maybe we opened a new door to understand leukemia better and to fight it at a crucial root, Bumm said.

Polycythemia vera is rare, about five in every 1 million people have it. Without treatment, about half the people who have polycythemia vera with symptoms die in less than two years.

Often, people with polycythemia vera have no symptoms for years. The earliest symptoms usually are weakness, fatigue, headache, light-headedness, shortness of breath and night sweats. Vision may be distorted, and a person may have blind spots or may see flashes of light. Bleeding from the gums and more bleeding than would be expected from small cuts are common. The skin, especially the face, may look red. A person may itch all over, particularly after bathing or showering.
