Abstract

This year the Lasker DeBakey Clinical Research Award will be shared by Brian Druker, Nicholas Lydon, and Charles Sawyers for their development of a targeted molecular therapy for treating chronic myeloid leukemia. Their work demonstrated the ability of drugs directed against cancer-causing oncogenes to turn a rapidly fatal malignancy into a manageable chronic disease.
