Measuring changes in RNA expression in T acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) exposed to non-gravity conditions with and without chemotherapy.
T acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) is very common in children and is treated by chemotherapy, which is toxic and partially effective .
Aim: Study changes in proliferation and gene expression in the malignant cells in sub-gravity conditions .
This novel research may contribute to innovative less toxicity and more effective treatment.
The cooperation of pediatric patients in the study, alongside researchers from a range of sectors (medical, lab and educators) and their dealings with cancer from the standpoint of science, while gaining personal empowerment, can contribute to the improvement of their emotional resilience in coping with their disease.
