Guidelines for Diagnosis, Indications for Treatment, Response Assessment and Supportive Management of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

Guidelines for Diagnosis, Indications for Treatment, Response Assessment and Supportive Management of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

These new guidelines were just published today, but Blood Journal has them paywalled. 😬

Patients can request access to the paper, by emailing Blood and giving the title above...

Let's swamp their offices with requests... 📬📬📬📬📬

Patient Information

Although we are unable to provide answers to specific and/or individual questions about hematological problems, conditions, diagnoses, or treatments, the American Society of Hematology, publisher of Blood, provides links to several third-party websites offering information on Blood diseases and related disorders. Please visit the Patient Resources section of the ASH website for further information.

Patients interested in obtaining a copy of an access-controlled article in Blood that may be helpful to their situation may do so by e-mailing a request to the Blood Publishing Office. The request should include the following information:

Article citation information, including author(s), title of article, issue date & page number (example: Rafik Terra et al., T-cell generation by lymph node resident progenitor cells, July 1, 2005, p. 193). All citation information can be found with the article or abstract information online.

I think I will just ask my specialist for a copy--suggesting that their may be people who do not have computer access, but could benefit from a hard copy.

What's the big secret? Isn't this to benefit all?

These are specifically from the American Society of Haematology.

The UK guidelines, led by Prof Dr Anna Schuh have been submitted to the British Society for Haematology and will be out quite soon. I've seen them, having had a bit of input myself.
