Abstract

Prognostic markers that capture leukemia stem cell (LSC) activity can be useful for the risk stratification of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients. In a recent issue of Nature, Ng et al. (2016) develop a prognostic score based on a 17-gene expression signature of LSCs to predict outcome in AML patients.
