Current therapies do not offer patients a cure for CLL, but there are treatments that help manage the disease.
Types of CLL Treatment
Doctors use several types of approaches and treatment for adults with CLL, some at different stages:
- watch and wait
- drug therapy, including chemotherapy and monoclonal antibody therapy
- white cell (neutrophil) growth factors
- radiation therapy
- supportive care
Your doctor may suggest that you participate in a clinical trial. Clinical trials can involve therapy with new drugs and new drug combinations or new approaches to stem cell transplantation.
