Experts from Japan headed by Professor Hiroyuki Mano found a series of genes that determines a person's susceptibility to leukemia (blood cancer).
The study involved patients aged 15-39 years. Every patient of leukemia the person has a blood test to determine genome. We used a method of analysis of the sequence of amino acid residues in proteins inherited.
In summary, the researchers managed to select 19 genes that increase the risk of development of B-cell leukemia. Cancer cells in the case of this disease appear in contact with hereditary elements, inherited from relatives through genetic transmission.
Japanese scientists believe their discovery could revolutionize the diagnosis and treatment of blood cancer in the world
