Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) is a condition characterized by an
accumulation of abnormal lymphocytes in the blood and the bone marrow.
These lymphocytes do not perform their functions as normal ones would and
interfere with the production of other blood cells necessary for the normal
functioning of the blood, leading to a host of complications like deficiency of
the immune system, coagulation problems, swollen lymph nodes, and many other
About 8,100 new cases are found each year in the U.S. alone, mostly on older
people over 50 years of age. It currently has no cure but new research is
bringing new approaches to managing the disease and we hope that the day a
complete cure is found is very near.
