CLL Webinar Thursday 22nd April: How genetics may have influenced your CLL/SLL

Hi, here is the next webinar from the CLL Support Association:-
You are invited to our next webinar

Thursday 22 April 1.00 pm London (9.00 am EST)

"How genetics may have influenced your CLL/SLL"

This webinar will focus on an important paper for CLL patients recently published by our two distinguished guest speakers

By examining blood samples of patients with CLL, Dr Allsup and Professor Allan discovered there was a genetic tendency to develop progressive forms of the illness in some patients.

The study presents the opportunity in future to warn prospective patients that they also possess the genetic make-up that could lead to developing progressive CLL, and to design a personalised treatment process for them long before the illness takes effect.

We will hear about this vital research and the panelists’ thoughts on how it could impact CLL patients.

James Allan is a Professor of Cancer Genetics at the Newcastle Centre for Cancer. He has Specialist Programme funding from Blood Cancer UK which funds his work to develop novel treatments for leukaemia and to identify the underlying genetic causes of leukaemia, including CLL.

David Allsup is a senior lecturer in haematology in the Hull York Medical School and honorary NHS consultant in haematology at the Hull University Teaching Hospital Trust. He has a longstanding interest in CLL and has published numerous papers on the subject. He is a member of the CLL trials subgroup, a co- investigator on the FLAIR clinical trial and is developing a phase III clinical trial for relapsed CLL.
