Monash scientists close in on childhood leukaemia genes

A/Prof Ross Dickins' group works on
genetic mutation in cancer
by Anne Crawford

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common childhood cancer. Whereas about 90% of paediatric ALL patients can be cured with current therapies, the prognosis for those who don’t respond is poor.

Monash University researchers at the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases (ACBD) used a novel approach to identify three genes that could be potential new targets for drugs to treat these patients.

The Big Picture: Benefits of HIV self testing

Professor Christopher Fairley with a
colleague, Dr Eric Chow
by Anne Crawford

"The Big Picture" will be a series profiling multicentre and international studies in which Central Clinical School (CCS) researchers and affiliates play a part.

CCS and Melbourne Sexual Health Centre researchers Professor Kit Fairley and Dr Marcus Chen were part of a multi-centre Australian study investigating whether HIV self-testing would increase frequency of testing in high-risk gay and bisexual men, with a particular focus on men who delayed testing or had never been tested before.

Frequent testing of individuals at high risk of HIV is central to current prevention strategies.
