Each year about 3,500 children and adolescents in the U.S. are diagnosed with acute leukemia. Most cases are classified as either acute lymphoblastic leukemia or acute myeloid leukemia.
But for the 2 to 3 percent of patients with mixed phenotype acute leukemia, the classification is not clear and neither is the treatment. Mixed phenotype acute leukemia shares features of the other acute leukemias.
Scientists have completed the most comprehensive genetic analysis yet of this high-risk leukemia. The researchers identified mutations specially associated with the two most common subtypes of mixed phenotype acute leukemia.
Investigators also found the mutations were acquired early in blood cell development.
This has implications for how we understand the origins of leukemia. It also has clinical implications because having a better way to classify patients should aid in designing clinical trials to develop more effective therapies.

Help us celebrate the 92nd birthday of the first St. Jude director, Donald Pinkel, M.D. His contributions to cancer care and research led to important improvements in treating both childhood and adult cancers.
His revolutionary Total Therapy regimen became the standard of care and served as the foundation for future St. Jude innovations and contributions to cancer research and treatment.
In 2017, St. Jude dedicated a campus building to this pioneer—the Donald P. Pinkel, MD, Research Tower.

We are honored to be named one of the 20 most innovative children’s hospitals by @Parents magazine. Hospitals were chosen for adopting the latest technologies and sharing their advancements with other pediatric centers. The magazine featured one of our recent innovations, #StJudeCloud, where scientists can explore data or analyze their own in a secure cloud environment.

Each year, cancer is diagnosed in about 175,000 children ages 14 and younger worldwide. Due to improvements in therapies and advances in research, more than 80 percent of U.S. #childhoodcancer patients now become long-term survivors.
About 420,000 childhood #cancer survivors live in the U.S., with many more around the world. During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we honor the patients, along with the doctors, scientists and staff who are dedicated to finding cures and saving children.

A recent study from St. Jude found that health-related financial hardship was widespread among adult survivors of childhood cancer, with more than half of survivors worried about how to pay for medical care.
Researchers recommend that financial checkups should be part of health screenings for #childhoodcancer survivors. St. Jude is developing a screening tool to help identify at-risk survivors and possible interventions to address the problem.

We’re honored. The @nationalcancerinstitute has renewed the St. Jude Comprehensive #Cancer Center’s designation, earning the highest mark of “exceptional.” At St. Jude, the Comprehensive Cancer Center is organized as five cross-disciplinary, multi-departmental programs aligned to specific diseases and research concepts—Developmental Biology and Solid Tumor Program; Neurobiology and Brain Tumor Program Hematological Malignancies Program; Cancer Control and Survivorship Program; and the Cancer Biology Program. There are also nine centralized shared resources.
