This section is designed for Health Care Professionals and covers the latest information available for the treatment and management of SLL and CLL. We aim to keep this area up to date with developments in CLL research.
Earlier this year, the British Society of Haematology published new guidelines for the treatment of SLL/CLL. The full guidelines are available for review here.
