Researchers solve mystery of how ALL enters the central nervous system

A deadly feature of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is its invasion of the central nervous system. ALL in the central nervous system is very difficult to treat, because most drugs are blocked from the organ system due to a “blood-brain barrier” designed to protect the brain. How cancer cells enter the central nervous system has been an unanswered question for researchers and clinicians for decades. A research team has now found that this blood cancer infiltrates the central nervous system not by breaching the blood-brain barrier, but by evading the barrier altogether.

Pence to Central Americans: Stay put

Pence to Central Americans: Stay putUS Vice President Mike Pence urged Central American leaders Thursday to halt what he called an exodus of people that has triggered a humanitarian crisis at the US border with Mexico. Pence met with the presidents of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras and insisted that few of the tens of thousands of people who have made the dangerous trek through Mexico this year are fleeing persecution even though many claim asylum. Aid groups in those countries and at the border insist that many of the travelers report fleeing death threats and other rampant violence from powerful street gangs.
