A Case-Based Approach to CLL and Mantle Cell Lymphoma: Novel Therapies and Transplant Options

Using a case-based format and the latest research, experts will address the clinical management of patients with CLL and MCL and discuss both frontline and salvage therapies.  Such therapies will include conventional chemotherapy as well as transplant approaches.  For CLL, what is the risk-adapted sequence for treatment and who can benefit from earlier and more aggressive therapeutic interventions, including hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT)?  For MCL, what are the optimal therapeutic approaches for this challenging disease using standard agents, novel approaches, and HCT?
