Bromodomain and extra terminal protein (BET) inhibitors are first-in-class targeted therapies that deliver a new therapeutic opportunity by directly targeting bromodomain proteins that bind acetylated chromatin marks. Early clinical trials have shown promise, especially in acute myeloid leukaemia, and therefore the evaluation of resistance mechanisms is(More)
The diagnosis and monitoring of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDSs) are highly reliant on bone marrow morphology, which is associated with substantial interobserver variability. Although azacitidine is the mainstay of treatment in MDS, only half of all patients respond. Therefore, there is an urgent need for improved modalities for the diagnosis and monitoring(More)
Several novel therapeutics are poised to change the natural history of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and the increasing use of these therapies has highlighted limitations of traditional disease monitoring methods. Here we demonstrate that circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) is readily detectable in patients with CLL. Importantly, ctDNA does not simply(More)
