Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Overview

  • The Center for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center (DF/BWCC) provides comprehensive care and promising new therapies to patients with CLL.

    As one of only a few dedicated CLL centers in the country, our team of specialists has unique expertise in caring for patients with this kind of cancer, including extensive prognostic testing, tissue banking, and access to a leading stem cell transplantation program if necessary.

    We are a centralized hub for CLL research, and our team of laboratory and clinical-based investigators and physicians offers access to clinical trials of new, promising therapies. We are known for our range of clinical trials, which are available for patients with every stage of the disease, from newly diagnosed to refractory disease.

    Our Center is part of the Center for Hematologic Oncology at DF/BWCC, which includes the hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Program — one of the largest and most experienced in the world.
