Today on the CLL Society website, we share Dr. Januario Castro’s lecture from the Patient Empowerment and Education Meeting held at UCSD in April 2015 about using targeted therapies to treat high-risk CLL, specifically Richter’s transformation, plus a description of a new clinical trial that he and Dr. Kipps and Dr. Choi are running out of UCSD. Please take a look here to see the article and a video of his talk.
The countdown is on! This week I’ll be taking my every 10 year family practice board exams., next week is Thanksgiving and the follow week is the American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting in Orlando. No rest for the weary! We’re finalizing our schedule to attend the most exciting presentations about CLL, viewing the CLL posters and interviewing CLL experts from around the world. These are very exciting times for patients and those researching the most effective treatments for CLL in the goal towards a cure.
