State-of-the-Art Treatments for Chronic Leukemia
For treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) treatment and chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) treatment, our expert team at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center offers state-of-the-art treatments. Many of these innovative treatments are a result of our focus on research to identify new and improved treatment options through clinical trials, including:
- Monoclonal antibodies: Known as man-made version of antibodies, or immune system proteins, this drug therapy can help your immune system destroy cancer cells.
- Targeted therapy: New drug therapies are now available to specifically target the changes within cells that lead to cancer. By attacking rapidly growing cells, cancer cells are blocked.
- Stem cell transplants: Many times, curative for many forms of chronic leukemia, stem cell or hematopoietic cell transplant replaces the diseased bone marrow with new healthy cells.
