The 2016 revision of the World Health Organization (WHO) classification of lymphoid neoplasms is coming soon... and CLL/SLL is still a lymphoma.
There are a number of changes particularly to MBL, which is now considered a precursor to CLL, in virtually all cases... but is subdivided in to high and low count MBL.
They will be a look at follicular proliferation centers and new treatments, sub clones ... as well.
I can hardly wait! 😄
