Though 5-year survival rates for children with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) have improved dramatically from 1975 to 2010 (from 20 percent to 70 percent), advances in survival rates have stalled since then. But new data uncovered by Ohio State University College of Pharmacy pharmacogenetics researchers  suggest that genetic variants affect the way chemotherapy is transported through the system, making the case for more personalized therapies. Christina Drenberg (Guttke), PhD, was the first author on a study that was published in Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics.

The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy is pleased to announce that Peixuan Guo, PhD, has been selected as the first Sylvan G. Frank Endowed Chair in Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery Systems.
