Today on the CLL Society website, we share a continuation of the Targeted Therapies for CLL theme with Dr. Jeffrey Jones speaking about how Kinase Inhibitors work in treating CLL, both those currently available, as well as new second generation kinase inhibitors and next steps to fully understanding the best use of these targeted agents. He spoke at the Patient Empowerment and Education Meeting held at UCSD in April 2015. Please take a look here to see the article and a video of his talk.
By the time you read this, I will have completed my family practice board exams and all eyes will look forward to Thanksgiving with the family and then on to the American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting in Orlando. No rest for the weary! We’re now putting the final tweaks on our schedule to attend the most exciting presentations about CLL, viewing the CLL posters and interviewing CLL experts from around the world.
