Risk Stratification in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

The Role of the Clinical Laboratory

Goals Today

Slide 2

November 2008

Our goals today will be to understand the various prognostic risk factors that are used in evaluating chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), to realize how clinicians use prognostic risk factors in the management of patients, and to understand how risk factor analysis is used in conjunction with diagnostic testing in CLL.

Please note that there is a previous Hot Topics on CLL: “Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia: New Approaches for a Common Disease” That particular Hot Topic dealtwith the diagnostic criteria of CLL and monoclonal B-cell lymphocytosis as well as minimal residual disease detection in patients with CLL.
