Slide 18

October 2008

The concept of familial CLL has recently emerged. It is now recognized that families with known CLL patients have an increased risk of having MBL or CLL identified within their own kindred. Anywhere from 12%-18% of CLL patients will have an extended family member with CLL or some other type of lymphoproliferative disorder. The precise genetic factors within familial CLL remain undefined and are uncertain.
