We all know that patients diagnosed with CLL may have to spend many years of emotional and psychological stress while waiting to find out if their cancer will progress. This innovative tool will help identify those never likely to require treatment and those most likely to respond to certain types of treatment. This tool can stratify patients early into appropriate treatment pathways and help inform decision making by both patients and their treating physicians.

The peoples vote is open here until 12:00 on Friday 22 June.

Great to see so many vote for them !! The test could help many avoid the uncertainty of a one bucket fits all diagnosis, identify those likely to never require treatment, while helping clinicians have an insight into response to particular treatment for those that do. Well done Linda in Weston
