Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

New Approaches for a Common Disease

CLL and Minimal Residual Disease (MRD)

Slide 23

October 2008

I want to finish this session by briefly talking about CLL and MRD. MRD eradication is goal of current therapies. But questions certainly exist:

Does absence of MRD improve overall survival?
Does MRD detection predict early relapse?

These questions and others have not been definitively answered. But without a doubt, laboratories are now being asked to detect MRD in CLL patients.
