This is a case-based activity that includes discussion of a 43-year old female with newly diagnosed Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), diagnosed in 2012, initially managed with observation. In February 2014, the patient comes for a follow-up with no symptoms. The patient completes six cycles of FCR and enters a complete remission, albeit MRD positive. She is serially observed, and two years later returns to clinic with the following lab results:WBC 25, HgB 11, Platelets 110,000. This case presentation engages users to consider best next steps as the faculty lead in discussion.
- Assess the efficacy and toxicity of novel small molecule inhibitors for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- Evaluate advantages of chemo-immunotherapy in front line therapy of selected patients with low risk CLL
- Review the role of specific CLL –related risk factors for choice of appropriate CLL therapy in the front-line setting
