Oncology is a promising branch of medicine that is constantly evolving. Scientists and physicians interested in the reasons for the development of tumors, their treatment, the relationship between the factors and mechanisms of cancer processes.

Research conducted by geneticists their Laboratory, cold springs Harbor, proves the existence of a specific gene, which enhances the development of acute myeloid leukemia, writes Zee News.
