CLL Society Webinar “The Future of CAR-T Therapy: Can CAR-T Cure CLL?”
Join us on November 17 with CAR-T researcher Dr. Joe Fraietta. While CAR-T therapy is not yet approved for use in CLL, there are CLL patients who have received CAR-T in clinical trials who remain cancer-free 10 years after therapy! So, show up for “class” on Nov. 17 as all of us strive to learn all we can about how this promising “living drug” works. Register today!
Conference Coverage ASH 2019
ASH 2019 interview with Dr. Sameer Parikh: Did you know that there is a pre-cancerous condition known as Monoclonal B-cell lymphocytosis (MBL) which is present in 5% of the population over age 40? Most people with “low count” MBL will never develop CLL. Dr. Sameer Parikh is interested in studying what early changes differentiate MBL from other conditions and what causes a “high-count” MBL to progress to CLL. Learn more here.
CLL Society 2020 Patient Survey on MRD testing & Limited Duration Therapy:
When CLL Society takes on a learning initiative to give you in-depth mastery of any important subject, our lessons are never “one and done”! We stay with you until learning is complete. How do we do it? We survey the collective knowledge of our readers to determine what you still “yearn to learn” so that we can best tailor future learning for you. Our MRD & LD Survey is still in play. Please help us out by giving your thoughts. Thanks!
Practicing with the Patient Voice: A Patient Decision Library: Wow!

The CLL Society is pleased to have partnered with Platform Q on their Cancer Coach Live virtual case library – 4 patient stories. Check it out!
