This program will update you on the results so far regarding LLS’s COVID-19 Antibody Research Study. In February 2021, LLS began to collect data regarding COVID 19 in the LLS patient registry. LLS understood that COVID antibody research needed to be done, and so, in February this study began and over the ensuing months, the Registry has had over 3,500 patients take part in this study. The LLS registry now is over 8,000 patients. The study is ongoing and will be continuing not only to understand the safety and efficacy of the vaccines, but soon some information about whether other parts of the immune system, besides antibodies, are important for a patient’s ability to respond to the vaccine.
