How do I decide between a fixed duration treatment versus continuous therapy for CLL?

CLL is treated very differently today than it was ten years ago when most therapies were chemo based. Join us to discuss alternative treatments.

20 October 2022

Join us on Thursday 20th October as we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of fixed-duration treatment and continuous therapy with leading haematologists.

What questions and advice will be covered? 
Due to the high number of attendees, we are not always able to answer each individual’s question, however, we aim to explore a large variety of topics such as:

  • Who is eligible for seasonal flu jabs and COVID-19 boosters this autumn and winter?
  • When are these available to different groups?
  • What type of vaccines are recommended this year?
  • What day-to-day measures should leukaemia patients employ this winter to avoid infection?
  • What other therapies are available or under review for protecting the immunocompromised?

We will be joined by:

Professor Alex Richter, Honorary Consultant in Clinical Immunology, Institute of Immunology and Immunotherapy

Travel

A holiday is usually a time of relaxation, but after a blood cancer diagnosis, you may find it harder to find a travel insurance company that will cover you. It can be difficult, but planning your trip more carefully can help you feel more relaxed, leaving time for you to enjoy your holiday.
