Treating Leukemia - Chronic Lymphocytic (CLL) TOPICS

More treatment information about chronic lymphocytic leukemia

For more details on treatment options − including some that may not be addressed in this document − the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) are good sources of information.

The NCCN, made up of experts from many of the nation's leading cancer centers, develops cancer treatment guidelines for doctors to use when treating patients. Those are available on the NCCN Web site (www.nccn.org). Treatment guidelines for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) are included in the Non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas guidelines (because CLL is closely related to some forms of lymphoma).

The NCI provides treatment guidelines via its telephone information center (1-800-4-CANCER) and its Web site (www.cancer.gov). Detailed guidelines intended for use by cancer care professionals are also available on www.cancer.gov.
