The group of researchers found that when the protein INPP4B was found in patients with leukemia, they did not respond to chemotherapy. Sewa told ABC, "[T]his protein can be used as another biomarker of the disease... [W]e're focusing on how it acts in leukemic cells to cause chemoresistance. So if we can find out how it works, then we can target the protein and the pathway to then treat acute myeloid leukemia more effectively."
