Today we are posting an audio interview (and accompanying transcript) with Dr. Ben Kennedy who I spoke with during the 2016 CLL Horizons meeting in Belgrade Serbia a few weeks ago. We talked about how CLL affects our immune systems in addition to being a blood cancer. You can access that interview here. http://cllsociety.org/2016/12/immunogobulins-and-ivig/
The next issue of The CLL Tribune will be coming out the week after Christmas. We’re busy editing, and doing the layout and putting on all the finishing touches. We’ll also be sharing the poster from ASH that many of you contributed to in our Q1 2016 Reader Poll.
