– We are a referral center for acute leukemia patients from around the region, draining states around Colorado and from within Colorado, of course. Many patients referred here for initial assessment and treatment of their acute leukemia. Acute leukemia’s a very life-threatening disease. It often comes on very fast and requires very strong chemotherapies and very detailed and extended supportive […]
– So we’ve discussed HLA a couple times. That stands for Human Leukocyte Antigens. Basically, these are the eyes and ears of the immune system. So immune cells don’t have a photo recognition system. They have a complex system of molecules on the surface that touch and feel the environment so that the immune system knows what it’s seeing. It […]

– Acute myeloid leukemia is treated, basically, with high-dose chemotherapy, and this requires hospitalization and close monitoring while they’re in the hospital.
– The treatment of lymphoma has changed dramatically over the last 10 years. There are very specific agents that block specific abnormalities in the cancer cells that drives proliferation, and there’s been a cornucopia of different agents that have become available. Some of them are commercially available but some of them are currently being developed in clinical trials.
I wanted to get involved in medical research because I realised just how deficient our treatments were for the patients I was seeing. Most of my patients were dying of the diseases they were diagnosed with, usually within months or years. It was clear there had to be something fundamentally different done.
