Clinical trials can provide the most advanced treatments for CLL/SLL before they are commercially available. Other benefits can include close monitoring by an expert healthcare team and often coverage of the cost of the trial medications and potentially other trial related expenses.
Join CLL Society and Dr. Adrian Wiestner with National Institutes of Health (NIH) and clinical trials nurse Kaitlin Kennard with UPENN to learn more about clinical trials, who should consider participating, what questions you should ask, and your rights. Christina Rodriguez Fuller will share her experience in a clinical trial as part of her frontline treatment for CLL.
