DHEA And Leukemia
There is no effective conventional therapy for adult T-cell leukemia (ATL). In this study, DHEA levels were measured in the serum of ATL leukemia patients. These patients had significantly decreased levels of DHEA compared to healthy controls. The scientists speculated that DHEA might be beneficial in treating this form of leukemia, since it has already been shown effective in treating hairy-cell leukemia. The scientists suggested that DHEA be combined with standard cancer chemotherapy in treating ATL leukemia.
