  • Consider the efficacy and safety profile of the therapeutic agent along with patient characteristics and molecular features of CLL to individualize therapeutic strategies for newly diagnosed CLL.
  • Choose optimal treatment for relapsed/refractory CLL based on the available clinical data, guidelines, and expert recommendations.
  • Plan treatment strategies that sequence targeted agents to optimize patient outcomes and quality of life.
  • Evaluate the efficacy, toxicity profile and other practical management considerations assocaited with novel approved and investigational agents and combination regimens in CLL.
