Dr Allsup and Prof Allan discuss new research – 22 April 21

This webinar focussed on an important paper for CLL patients recently published by our two distinguished guest speakers.

By examining blood samples of patients with CLL, Dr Allsup and Professor Allan discovered there was a genetic tendency to develop progressive forms of the illness in some patients.

The study presents the opportunity in future to warn prospective patients that they also possess the genetic make-up that could lead to developing progressive CLL, and to design a personalised treatment process for them long before the illness takes effect.  The webinar covers this vital research and the panelists’ thoughts on how it could impact CLL patients.
