Medical News / ASH Meeting 2020, Vaccine Could Provide Long-Term Acute Myeloid Leukemia Remission

The data, presented this weekend at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) 2020 Annual Meeting, also presented 2 incidents in which patients were converted from measurable residual disease (MRD) positive to MRD negative status, with year-plus remission duration, after the vaccination.
