Richter's - we all dread that word and try not to think about it but if the worst does happen then it's good to be well informed, preferably beforehand.

This short paper from the British Society for Haematology was written by the leading CLL/Richter's doctors in the UK and sets out best practice for the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of Richter's in the UK.

Finally, another mention of the only UK Trial for Richter's patients - STELLAR. Details from a previous post here:

Remember - this IS CURABLE

Jackie if this is "curable" why do some people die from it?

Probably they do not have access to the latest treatments and the best specialists.

Sadly not always curable and any difficulties in confirming the diagnosis or delays in treatment result in worsening outcomes :(
