Study sheds new light on aggressive cancer in children

3 febrero 2015

A new study has revealed how children with an aggressive cancer predisposition syndrome experience a never before seen flood of mutations in their disease in just six months. The syndrome, called ‘biallelic mismatch repair deficiency’ (bMMRD) causes multiple brain tumours, lymphomas and gastrointestinal cancers by the age of 10. As a result these children rarely survive into adulthood.
