"A promising new drug, CBL0137, blocks cancer cell growth by inhibiting the cancer‐associated protein, FACT. Leukaemia in infants is normally very hard to treat, despite intensive regimens... However this new agent potently kills infant leukaemia cells and we propose to develop CBL0137 for clinical use in children with aggressive leukaemia."
