Prof Jaques van Dongen talks to ecancer at the ALL Assembly 2018 Meeting in Amsterdam about the immunological monitoring of patients.

Prof van Dongen discusses that of the hot topics is the detection of minimal residual disease (MRD) and how this has become the standard technology.

He also explains that it is key to investigate how leukaemic cells decrease during treatment and how normal B-cells regenerate as this can identify a presence of leukaemic cells that otherwise could not be seen.
