Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia

New prognostic markers in this disease have been introduced by the Department and are currently used in the evaluating of patients at diagnosis and directing the choice of appropriate therapy. We have active research projects investigating novel agents in the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and the role of the tumour microenvironment in disease pathogenesis and progression.
