Nottinghamshire Leukaemia Appeal has provided funds of £6600 to further work on a research project being carried out at the University of Nottingham. Whilst many cancer cells grow and divide quickly, a subset remain dormant or ‘sleeping’. Chemotherapy drugs tend not to work on these sleeping cells and this project plans to establish why these cells are resistant to drugs and whether there are specific abnormalities in these cells that may be exploited in future treatment regimens.
