The study showed that a gene called FOXD3 likely plays a key role in CLL, and that the gene is silenced early, followed by the silencing of other genes.
Our data suggest that the silencing of FOXD3 might represent a very early gene involved in the initiation of CLL that we can potentially target for re-expression with specific drugs," says study leader Dr.
