A very important post from Chaya: updates.clltopics.net/4936-...
Anyone who knows the dedication Chaya has for those of us with CLL/SLL, will be recommending her latest article as a must read!
That's why this is an unlocked post.
**Update**: This post has resulted in a huge amount of interest and much concern, so I should highlight that Chaya has posted her speculative and hopefully rather pessimistic appraisal out of concern for a community that she dedicated a huge amount of personal time supporting, through thorough researching and then turning relevant research papers into easily readable language. Chaya's qualifications are in chemistry, not medicine but she took particular interest in the infection risks for those with CLL after losing her much loved husband, who had CLL, to an infection that should not have happened. I learned much of my initial CLL knowledge from Chaya's articles and resulting discussions and she greatly inspired me to pass on what I learn through my continuing personal studies here and in other CLL communities.
I recommend cajunjeff's post here: healthunlocked.com/cllsuppo... be read for a more balanced viewpoint.
