Promising New Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Treatment Option

A new treatment option called ACP-196 is showing remarkable potential for effectively treating chronic lymphocytic leukemia, or CLL. Researcher Amy Johnson, PhD, explains how a daily pill might completely change the way CLL is treated. Still being studied, ACP-196 has delivered excellent results to date, with 95 percent of patients experiencing favorable results – and with very few side effects – meaning it might be the answer to offering extraordinary outcomes for CLL patients.

Can Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia be Cured?

Most often, CLL cannot be cured completely; however, new treatment options such as ACP-196 are helping people live for many years while still having the disease. Most people have to experience treatment at some point throughout the course of the disease.
