The prevalence of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) in the United States is on the rise. To enhance the delivery of individualized treatment, clinicians must be familiar with the efficacy and safety of current treatment options as well as molecular features of CLL and patient characteristics that drive treatment selection. In this activity, an expert from Harvard Medical School reviews clinical data and national guidelines for individualizing treatment of patients with newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory CLL, and discusses strategies to manage adverse events and improve treatment compliance.
