Research at the Canadian Centre for Applied Research in Cancer Control led to a new standard in leukemia testing.

Diagnosing and treating acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) can be very costly. Dr Stuart Peacock, Dr Sonya Cressman and the team at the Society-supported Canadian Centre for Applied Research in Cancer Control found that a new genetic test to help guide AML treatment was cost effective. This led to British Columbia approving the test as a new standard of care for AML.
