Scientifically inquisitive CLL person needs information

Ok, so I have the booklet "CLL Patient Information" given to me by my haematologist when I was first diagnosed about 6 months ago, but I am struggling to find the next exciting installment.

I need to know what the main lines of treatment are and where the stumbling blocks are in finding an actual cure. Of course I can look up what a kinase inhibitor is but it would be nice to find all the relevant information in one place.
