Genetic correlation between multiple myeloma and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia provides evidence for shared aetiology (2018)
Journal Article
Went, M., Sud, A., Speedy, H., Sunter, N. J., Försti, A., Law, P. J., …Houlston, R. S. (2019). Genetic correlation between multiple myeloma and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia provides evidence for shared aetiology. Blood Cancer Journal, 9(1), doi:10.1038/s41408-018-0162-8
