New this week!
Too often outcomes in the real world, especially far away from academic centers are not as good as they are in trials. Dr. Roeker at ASH 2018 shares that the real world outcomes with venetoclax were similar to those found in the clinical studies. This is also important as Dr. Roeker is part of a new generation of young CLL researchers that we patients need to support and encourage. Read more details on this promising news and Dr. Koffman’s commentary here.
The CLL Society is very grateful to all the amazing faculty over the past recent 12 patient educational forums across the country. We finally remembered to take a picture. See the smiling Dr. Kipps, Choi and Koffman at our UCSD forum.
