Research conducted by experts at the Weill Cornel School of Medicine in New York City proved that cancer cells resist chemotherapy treatment in a form of “hibernation”.

Experiments on mice showed that especially in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a type of blood cancer, the diseased cells can escape from the destructive effect of chemotherapy by falling asleep and can form new cancer cells after treatment.

The study was published in the journal “American Association for Cancer Research”.
