Factors to consider in frontline and relapsed CLL before treatment

Barbara Eichhorst, MD from the University of Cologne, Cologne, Germany gives an overview factors that need to be considered when treating frontline and relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Dr Eichhorst explains that there are many factors to consider, such as the state of the disease, fitness, co-morbidities and the genetic profile of the patient. In the relapsed setting, it is also important to consider response to frontline therapy, duration of remission and genetic factors and co-morbidities.
